Welcome to Biggleswade

Over 2000 years ago the Romans built a road between the two great highways of Watling Street and Ermine Street which crossed the River Ivel. A thousand years later a Saxon settlement known a Bishcelsuade was established on the river crossing. During the course of time Bischelsuade came to be known as Biggleswade.

Biggleswade is an historic market town and, although the Parish Church of St Andrew's dates from 1230, it is considered to be built on the site of a much older church. The town now boasts a good range of leisure facilities including an indoor pool, shops and supermarkets, a library and good local restaurants, and benefits from one Upper School and two Middle Schools.

Only 45 miles north of London and 23 miles south west of Cambridge, Biggleswade has excellent transport links to surrounding towns including Hitchin, Stevenage, Hatfield and Bedford. A mainline rail station in within walking distance of the development and has regular services to London King's Cross, a journey time of forty five minutes.
