St Mary's Parish Church

St Mary's, Luton, is an Anglican Church in the centre of the town of Luton, England. The church has a rich and long history, being over 850 years old and has been rebuilt and refurbished constantly over the centuries. The Church is one of the largest in Bedfordshire and considered a fine example of medieval architecture. The Church is part of the St Albans Diocese.

Luton Union Baptist Chapel

The Union (Baptists and Independents) chapel was built in 1846 and a Sunday School building was added at the rear in 1889, but Baptists at Caddington go back much further. Episcopal visitations made by the Bishop of Lincoln to Bedfordshire in the early 18th century always asked how many nonconformists there were in a parish. Returns in that time note the following numbers: 1706 “many Anabaptists”; 1709 fourteen or fifteen families of Anabaptists; 1712 nine families of Anabaptists; 1717 “Numbers, I know not”; 1720 “I am strange to their Teachers and to the numbers of their Congregation”.
