Caption for Ampthill, Woburn Road c1955

Dating back to the 18th century, the deed to each of these cottages restricts the householder to replacing the thatched roof only with thatch, and further prescribes the method and colour of redecoration that may be carried out. It is doubtful that the legality of the covenant has ever been challenged. The bus on the right is an Eastern National vehicle operating the route between Ampthill and Bedford.

Memories of Ampthill


Prince of Wales Coaches. I think that was my dad's bus coming up Church Street and Vic the postman bless him, you could hear him coming up the street. What lovely memories I have of Ampthill. I lived at Prince of Wales till my marriage in 1959.

Vic The Postman

I feel sure the postman shown is Vic, who always whistled as he delivered the mail. He was like a favourite uncle when I was a child - sadly missed.

Ampthill Siren

My abiding memory of Ampthill is when I used to go to the Saturday pictures with my cousins and the fire engine would be called out. The only problem was the siren that called them out was the old wartime air-raid siren. What a noise !!! I lived in Maulden but often visited Ampthill. thanks for the memories. !!!
