You will know of the 'mugshot', but did you know it was first introduced into the criminal justice system by Robert Evan Roberts, a reforming governor of Bedford Prison in Victorian times? Join us on this walk and meet Roberts and others who made a difference in Bedford and in the world; an astronomer, a polar explorer, the first woman county councillor and discover how some of the most attractive private dwellings in Bedford came to grace this area of town.
Please note that this tour starts opposite Bedford Prison, at the top of St. Loyes Street, Bedford, MK40 1HG. The What3Words location is “resort.brings.copper”.
