Introduction

Putnoe was listed in the Domesday book: Putenehou: Hugh de Beauchamp. Mill. Part of Bedford.

The name in its present form has been around since the 16th Century, but was formely known as 'Puttenhoe' and 'Putenho' indicating the spur or 'hoh' of land belonging to an unknown Anglo-Saxon settler Putta, hence 'Puttas-hoe' => Putnoe!

Situated on the northern side of Bedford, the manor of Putnoe was formerly part of Goldington Parish. Since 1934 it has been within the Borough of Bedford, and became a mainly residential area during the 1950s. The current Putnoe parliamentary ward covers 512 acres and is populated by almost 7000 people.
