Bedford Jewish Community
Town of Bedford
Bedford, the former county town of Bedfordshire in south central England, has a population of about 100,000 and is situated on the river Great Ouse. In 1974, the municipal borough of Bedford was merged with adjoining areas to form the local government district (later borough) of North Bedfordshire, which in 1992 was renamed the borough of Bedford, remaining within the administrative county of Bedfordshire. In April 2009, the borough of Bedford became a unitary authority and Bedfordshire became purely a ceremonial county.
