However there are many areas of historical and environmental interest amongst which are the 12th century Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul, the Mill, Flitwick Manor - now a hotel, the Moor, once a source of peat for villagers and the Manor Park, originally part of the Manor estate in the ownership of the Brooks family but now owned by the Town Council for the pleasure and use of the community.
Date: 23rd April 2013
The Town Council have received information from the contractor carrying out works to build the roundabout on Steppingley Road. The contractors have advised that there will be 4 way traffic lights at the site for the next 2 weeks. Following this, there will be 3 way traffic lights and a closure of Flitwick Road, Steppingley. There will be manual controls at peak hours and the Town Council have asked for the contractors to control the entrance to the Rufus Centre.
There will be major works at the end of May until the end of August when the roundabout is being built.
The Town Council have received information from First Capital Connect regarding the works to Flitwick station's footbridge.
Recently work has been paused and residents may notice some changes over the next few days. Current scaffolding will be removed and works will instead be carried out using mobile elevated platforms which can be moved on and off site as needed. Work is continuing on the temporary staircase to access Platform 1, with the rest of the project continuing as intended.
Network Rail and First Capital Connect are fully committed to this project and it will be completed despite this minor delay.
On Sunday 2nd June the Town Council are holding a community event at the Rufus Centre to mark the anniversary of the Queen's Coronation. It will be a family day out with something for everyone!
