A village located about 6 miles east of Bedford just off the A421. Great Barford is a large village on the north bank of the River Ouse between Bedford and St. Neots. There has been much residential development with the older buildings being concentrated on the High Street and Green End. The river is spanned by a notable 17 arch narrow 15th century bridge and the riverside, with its modern lock and weir, is particularly attractive and a popular spot for fishing, boating and picnics.
