I am not native to the county, having lived here only for 10 years or so. It's a good place to live and over the next while, I intend to let you know just why that is.
People from this county are traditionally known as "Bedfordshire Bulldogs" or "Clangers." This is not a reference to those rather strange alien creatures made famous by a children's TV show a few years back, but rather to a local dish comprising of a suet crust dumpling filled with meat or jam or more often than not both.
I will return soon with another posting, outlining the history of my adopted home county.
