Nestling at the foot of the Greensand Ridge, overlooking the Forest of Marston Vale, lies a small English village called Lidlington. Located in the heart of Mid Bedfordshire, it has existed for over 1000 years and is mentioned in the Domesday book.
Lidlington is home to the Thomas Johnson Lower School which provides education for 5 to 9 year olds. 9 to 13 year olds can go to Stewartby Middle School while Wootton Upper School caters for 13 to 18 year olds. The nearest major medical centre is Bedford General Hospital.
M1 junction 13 is just 5 minutes from Lidlington and there is a regular bus service. Three major railway lines pass through the region and stations are located at Milton Keynes and Bletchley for the line from Euston; at Harlington and Flitwick on the Thameslink (Bedford to Brighton) Line, and at Lidlington and Millbrook on the Marston Vale (Bletchley to Bedford) Line.
