The Local Area Guide to living in Flitwick

10 miles north of Luton and 10 miles south of Bedford, lies Flitwick, a small town and civil parish, which sits gracefully in the magnificent Bedfordshire countryside. With roots that can be traced back to the Saxon times, the town is a treasure trove of historical artefacts, and was even mentioned in the Domesday book as ‘a hamlet on the River Flit’.

Aside from its ancient heritage, Flitwick has an abundance of natural wonders. From Flitwick Wood, a historic woodland offering soul-stirring walks, to Flitwick Moor nature reserve, famed for having the largest area of wetland in the county, nature-lovers will have a multitude of ways to gleefully pass the time.

If, however, it’s ancient antiquities that tickle your fancy, Flitwick Manor House, a Grade 2 listed building, is a gorgeous Georgian property built in the 1800s. It retains much of its ancient grandeur and also something of a more sinister nature. The property is said to be haunted by a malevolent spirit, which likes to make its presence known, so paranormal enthusiasts can get their share of frights and delights. The crumbling ruins of a 12th century Motte-and-bailey castle are also ripe for historical exploration.

Information about the local residents

Though the town’s intriguing past may entice passersby, it’s the town’s strategic position from Bedford, Luton and Milton Keynes, as well as its railway station linking Flitwick with the Big Smoke that ultimately seduces residents to stay here indefinitely. After all, the countryside offers many comforts that cannot be found in heavily congested towns such as lower living costs and more spacious properties – unlike the shared and pricey dwellings typically found in the country’s capital. As of 2011, over 13,000 people call Flitwick home, though, this figure may have grown slightly since then.

Nearby schools

Flitwick is home to four schools. Three lower schools and one middle school. Flitwick Lower School serves pupils between the ages of 5 and 9. When Ofsted last inspected the school back in 2013, they praised the teaching standards and awarded the establishment a rating of ‘Good’.

Similarly, Kingsmoor Lower School (catering for pupils between the ages of 3 and 9) also received an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’. Though Templefield, the third lower school, illustrates a nurturing learning environment, Ofsted noted that the school ‘Requires Improvement’.

At the middle school level, pupils transfer to the Woodland Middle School Academy, which serves pupils until they are the age of 13 years. Upon completing middle school, pupils will have to travel to the neighbouring town of Ampthill, which is where Redborne Upper School and Community College is located. Here, pupils can expect to be taught to a high standard and leave with good grades (in both GCSE and A-Levels) in tow.

Getting around

The focal point of this humble town is, of course, its railway station. With frequent routes (and equally attractive journey times) north to Bedford and south to Brighton, passing Luton, Luton Airport Parkway, London St Pancras and Gatwick Airport along the way, commuters are inevitably drawn to Flitwick. Most residents tend to, therefore, rely on this timely service.

The bus, however, is another convenient mode of transportation, transporting users around the town and to the neighbouring areas. Though, bus services only run during the weekdays and in some instances, Saturdays, for this reason, residents tend to mostly rely on either their car or the train to get them easily from A to B.

Local shops

Since Flitwick is such a bustling town with a thriving commuter community, you would expect a similarly vibrant shopping scene – sadly, this is not the case. Though it may have the bare amenities you could ever need, it isn’t jam-packed with name brand high street stores, instead smaller independent shops line the pretty streets.

However, the rustic pubs, charming eateries and the weekly market selling all manner of fresh produce more than make up for this. And with the glitzy shopping districts of London, Luton and Bedford minutes away, keeping up-to-date with the latest trends will never be too hard!
