The Embankment and Mill Meadows

The Embankment

The Embankment and Mill Meadows are frequently referred to as the Jewel in Bedford's Crown. The river was artificially widened by the Victorians and spanned by the ornate Suspension Bridge, opened in 1888. They created an inland promenade along which modern Bedfordians and visitors alike still love to amble, taking in the riverside views and the dazzling bedding displays of the Embankment Gardens.
