ABOUT The Bedford Park Society

The Bedford Park Society is not a 'Residents’ Association'. Founded in 1963 by two local residents, Tom Affleck Greeves and Harry Taylor, the Society’s main aim is to protect the character of the garden suburb. It is primarily concerned with the maintaining the buildings of Bedford Park and preserving the wider setting. It takes a keen interest in their maintenance and appropriate development to ensure that it is sympathetic to their architectural and historic importance.

Originally backed by poet and conservation campaigner Sir John Betjeman, the Society’s first task was to have the buildings of Bedford Park listed.

This was achieved in 1967, following an exhibition organised by the Society to draw attention to what by then had become an urgent problem. As a result over 350 houses, the former Stores, the Tabard Inn, the Club, the Church of St Michael and All Angels and its Parish Hall were all listed Grade II.
