Kempston is often thought of as part of Bedford, but is in fact a town in its own right, with its own mayor, its own non-league football team, and a population of 19,330 in 2011. It is ‘on the bend’ of what? Why is the first Kempston church so far from Kempston?! What is the origin of names Balliol, Hastingsbury, Daubeny? What was notable about Sainsbury’s when it opened? Who was Frances Latham? Who is Bob Plowman? Shall we visit The Keep, or the King William IV, or the greyhound racing track? 19,330 questions to be asked in five weeks.
