along the London to Cambridge Road, Buntingford is a small town
of 5,000 people. It has a central Conservation area and is designated
as an outstanding architectural or historical interest. Buildings
date from the 15th century.
mention of Buntas Ford is in a document of 1185 which
related to land owned by Knights Templar and it is referred to as
a town for the first time in a charter by Henry III in 1253 which
allowed it to hold a weekly market and a yearly fair. That led to
the town prospering; the market was restored after a long break in
the 1980s; market day is Monday.
