Felmersham and Radwell are two north Bedfordshire villages which together form the parish of Felmersham and Radwell.

This book looks back into the past of these two Ouse Valley villages using old photographs and drawings. Naturally it cannot give the full story of Bygone Felmersham and Radwell but it does give the reader a tantalising glimpse into the past.

In many instances it also compares photographs of how the parish looked in the past with photographs taken in the first decade of the twenty first century.
