You can find a short summary of John Betjeman’s involvement in helping save Bedford Park in the 1960s here.
The Society works to preserve the character of Bedford Park and to improve the amenities of the area and environment on behalf of the local community.
The Bedford Park Society aims to protect the amenities of the conservation area, the buildings and their setting, and to ensure any development is in keeping with the original character of the garden suburb.
We are keen to help our members with issues affecting the Bedford Park street scene, the quality of the environment and with the services provided to the community by the local authorities, police and other agencies.
Considered the world's first garden suburb, Bedford Park continues to retain its identity, community spirit and unique character bequeathed by the inspiration and genius of its original founder and architects.

Since 1963 we have been working to preserve and enhance the character of the suburb and its buildings - their setting, maintenance and development - and on community issues affecting residents. Please support our efforts.
