Welcome to Putnoe

This site provides information past & present about Putnoe.


Putnoe was listed in the Domesday book: Putenehou: Hugh de Beauchamp. Mill. Part of Bedford.


The name in its present form has been around since the 16th Century, but was formely known as 'Puttenhoe' and 'Putenho' indicating the spur or 'hoh' of land belonging to an unknown Anglo-Saxon settler Putta, hence 'Puttas-hoe' => Putnoe!


Situated on the northern side of Bedford, the manor of Putnoe was formerly part of Goldington Parish. Since 1934 it has been within the Borough of Bedford, and became a mainly residential area during the 1950s. The current Putnoe parliamentary ward covers 546 acres and is populated by over 7000 people.


Putnoe is bounded by the ancient Elm woodland of Putnoe Wood and Mowsbury Park to the North, the residential estates of Brickhill to the West and Goldington to the East The historical Southern boundary runs along Polhill Avenue.



A brief history of the Manor of Putnoe spanning more than 1000 years is given in the following links. The information contained herein is based on my research to date.
