Our History


Short History of Studham and surrounding area 0f Studham,

situated in attractive undulating and well-wooded countryside

south of Dunstable Downs, was originally in both Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire,hence the two Manor houses.

County boundary changes, the last ones being 1906, mean

that the entire Parish is now in Bedfordshire, although

connections with Hertfordshire are still strong.

The Parish Church of St. Mary is the oldest building in Studham,

being mentioned in the Doomsday book, 13th century in

origin with a fine interior including an earlier Norman font

decorated with dragons.

It is in St Albans diocese and shares a vicar with Kensworth

and Whipsnade. It has recently been ‘discovered’ by an

advertising company and is now helping to sell cars.

The Village Hall, right in the centre of the village has had a

very chequered history, being both a private dwelling

and a petrol station before becoming a well-equipped hall.

The cottages situated on the hill between the Village Hall and

The Bell were built to house straw platters for the Luton Hat trade.

The detached house at the end of the row being that of the

Supervisor, hence the old nickname of ‘witches cottage’.

It was said that as a result of ownership disputes between

Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, the Government

ombudsman ruled that It was said that as a result of ownership

disputes between Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, the Government

ombudsman ruled that whichever council could

put in electricity first could lay claim to the whole village,

needless to say Bedfordshire won and although there are no

records available giving the exact date it was very early in terms of

that utility. It was not until the 1960’s that mains water was piped

to the older houses and cottages, prior to that water was drawn

from private wells or from standpipes, which were fed from an

artesian pump in the rear gardens of houses in Church Road.

Mains sewage was connected in the late 1970’s

when the new sewage works were installed at the lower end

of the East Common at the junction with Dingfield Lane.
