Recent research by Bedford Park historians inspired Andrew Saint’s revised reading of Bedford Park’s origins and early history. He describes Bedford Park’s creation from a political standpoint and argues that it began not so much as an aesthetic suburb but rather as a radical suburb. He explores its pioneering role as a self-conscious middle-class community and reconsiders its reputation as the ‘first garden suburb’.
Andrew Saint is the General Editor of the Survey of London. He has been studying Bedford Park since the 1970s when he wrote the biography of Norman Shaw, of which a revised and improved edition appeared in 2010.
