Turvey, Carlton & Chellington
Turvey, is 6 miles west of Bedford, is situated along the A428 towards Northampton. A pretty village with a primary school, Anglican church, 3 pubs, post office and couple of shops.
The last census recorded the population at around 1200 and the village has a strong history of lace making.
It was recorded in the Domesday book and the original Manor was replaced by Turvey House in 1792. Turvey Abbey, a grade II listed building is now owned by a Bendictine order of Nuns, although historically it was a family house.
To the north of Turvey along the A428, are the villages of Carlton & Chellington which were merged in 1934 to become one parish.
Carlton has a village hall, primary school, St Mary the Virgin Church (dates back to 950AD), a couple of pubs and a playing field - which interestingly is home to Carlton’s giant Oak Tree.
It is also home to an Emmaus community which attracts visitors to its café and second hand shop (furniture, books, clothes).
Chellington is served by Harrold and Carlton amenities being far smaller, although it does house a beautiful conference centre – The Chellington Centre - within St Nicholas Church. Both villages are a short walk to Harrold across the historic causeway.
