The market town of Biggleswade benefits from great transport links including the mainline train station and its proximity to the A1. The transport links have ensured Biggleswade is an attractive area for commuters therefore the population has been steadily increasing with developments such as Saxon Gate in the 1990’s and further development of East Biggleswade.
Pubs in Biggleswade
The town has many interesting buildings including its old pubs (some of which we have surveyed) such as The White Hart believed to be one of the oldest buildings in the town. The Great Fire of Biggleswade was devastating to the town. It started on 16 June 1785 in The Crown Inn and quickly spread to St Andrew’s Street, Holme Lane and Langford Lane (now Hitchin Street) before moving onto Back Street, the Market Square, Foundry Lane and Bonds Lane. The damage was extensive destroying over 100 houses and making many homeless.

Biggleswade Town Centre
The town centre has an attractive market square with cafes and restaurants mixing both local and national chains. The work to the Stratton Street railway bridge caused chaos to businesses in the town as access to the town centre was limited during the period of works. However, works were much needed as the last major bridge works were in 1952.
