Stopsley, Luton

Stopsley is a ward (politics) in the north-east of Luton. Originally a hill-top village settlement, most of the urbanised part of the civil parish of Stopsley became part of Luton when the boundaries were extended in 1933, with the rural areas going to Hyde and Streatley. After the Second World War, there was a severe shortage of accommodation and to save both time and money new building materials were employed.
