John Bunyan

Bedford, Most famous as the home of John Bunyan and little else.

Has a nice riverside and some good pubs/clubs. At least three multi storey car parks and sells great bread, courtesy of the Italian bakers situated in the town.

Bedford has a large Italian population due to the proximity of the brickworks, many Italians were attracted to the town after the second world war to work in the brick factories as the mediterranean's could cope better with the heat of the brick kiln's than the local workforce.
