Thinking of moving to Sandy? Here is some information on the Town.
Sandy is a small market town and civil parish in Bedfordshire, England. It lies between Cambridge and Bedford, on the A1 roadfrom London to Edinburgh. The area is dominated by a range of hills known as the Sand Hills while the River Ivel runs through the town. The dedication of the Anglican church is to St Swithun.
Sandy is probably best known today as the headquarters of the RSPB. The Society moved to The Lodge, on the outskirts of the town in 1961. The Shuttleworth Collection is also nearby, around 2 miles (3.2 km) south west of Sandy. The Riddy is a flood meadow on the Ivel and Local Nature Reserve
