Views of Blunham

Here is the village church, dedicated to both St. Edmund and St. James, taken by me in the summer. The tower dates back to the 11th Century, while the main body of the church is 14th Century. The church boasts 6 bells in the tower (and mighty loud they are too !) One bell, cast in 1536, has a portuguese doubloon struck into the side of it. Steve was churchwarden here between 1990 and 1995, and the family go here most Sundays.

The stone village War Memorial (centre of picture) and in the St. George's Chapel of the church, list the names of those who lost their lives in both World Wars. Have you ever wondered who they were ? If you CLICK HERE you can get more infomation (from Martin Edward's marvellous Bedfordshire Genealogy site) on the actual individuals named on the memorials.
