27 July 2015: The focus of work on roundabouts has now switched particularly to the Clapham Road/Sainsbury’s roundabout and also to a roundabout that will give access in due course to development on the land north of Bromham Road. Work continues on the road itself.
The site offices have been removed from the land off Gold Lane, as work on the Bromham Road/Deep Spinney roundabout is virtually complete, apart from final signage, planting and any other remaining tweaks.
We have heard nothing further yet about whither on the section of fence on the Bedford side of the roundabout that has been the source of much debate since its construction. One does fear we may grow old together!

Interesting about the Welsh Regiments in Bedford. I well remember the Burrows Family but didn’t know about the Welsh connection. Ted Burrows was a lovely man.
One branch of the Green family gained some Welsh DNA at that time, probably other families too.
Thanks for your comments, Dennis, and continuing interest in the Blog. May and Warren had three sons, Horace Warren, Frederick Charles and Edward Stanley, so I assume your Ted must be their youngest son, Edward. He died at the young age of 42 in December 1970, when he was living with his mother at what was then 44 Church End. His ashes are buried in the graveyard at St James.
I’m currently investigating another potential village link with the Welsh troops in Bedford during the Great War, so watch this space!
Thanks for keeping us up to date.
