Details

North-west of Bedford, Stevington is a pleasant stone built village with a 14th century stone cross at its centre. The parish church has an Anglo-Saxon tower and inside some medieval bench ends with quaintly carved figures. Below the boundary wall of the churchyard is the Holy Well, a spring whose waters are said never to dry up or freeze. This is thought to be originally a pagan shrine and subsequently a place of Christian pilgrimage in the Middle Ages. At the south-east end of the village is a post windmill, dating from the second half of the 18th century.
