Situated along the London to Cambridge Road, Buntingford is a small town
of 5,000 people. It has a central Conservation area and is designated
as an outstanding architectural or historical interest. Buildings
date from the 15th century.

The earliest mention of Buntas Ford is in a document of 1185 which
related to land owned by Knights Templar and it is referred to as
a town for the first time in a charter by Henry III in 1253 which
allowed it to hold a weekly market and a yearly fair. That led to
the town prospering; the market was restored after a long break in
the 1980s; market day is Monday.

Hopefully with this unofficial site you'll be able to find what you need to know
about Buntingford I'll be increasing this site as I go along,
but if you have any ideas, info, web sites, or even your own shop, business,
club, band etc. to add to this site please feel free to send them in.
And most of it's free of charge. I hope over a period of time to add other pages
i.e. Forth Coming events page, Sports page (where local clubs can send in match
reports in, which will not be shorten or doctored at all), and a e-mail page.
If you have any comments at all good or bad send them in, I'd like to know your ideas.

Extracts from the Discovering Buntingford Trail Guides have been used in producing information on Buntingford history. I would like to thank the Buntingford Civic Society for their permission to use this information. These can be obtained from the library at 1 each.


I would like to thank Val Hume for giving me her permission to use articles from the Journal and Monty.
