Welcome to the Toddington Historical Society Web Page.

 

The first settlement at Toddington pre-dates the Norman Conquest, and the village was noted
when the Doomsday Book was produced in 1086. Over the next 900 years the village continually
developed with long periods of growth and prosperity. Toddington became an important market
town.

When the railway passed away from the village in 1800’s the fortunes of the town waned and
development in the late 1800’s and 1900’s was relatively slow compared to other local settlements
like Luton and Dunstable.

With the advent of the car, the village has grown significantly and extends far beyond the Market
Square. It is this area in close proximity to the Market Square where most of the village’s rich
historical heritage can be found.
