About Sandy History

Sandy Historical Research Group was initially formed way back in late 2001, in order to capture the history of this Bedfordshire market town during the last 150 years or so (and further back where possible).A number of projects have been undertaken – some completed, others in progress. We are on a mission to achieve a museum for the town and we have been in discussion with Sandy Town Council regarding options and possibilities. The group has also had discussions with AOC regarding the archaeological dig that was carried out on the new Tesco store development in New Road in 2011. This website was set up to promote the group’s activities and also invite contributions from interested parties.

The group also produces a local magazine around twice a year named– “SHRUB“. This biannual release is chock full of articles written by members and supporters, about the history of Sandy and its residents over the last 150 years or so. Back copies are available @ £2.50, in hard copy. The current Spring & Autumn editions are £4. All can be posted for an additional £1:50 per copy.
