About

Potton is a thriving town of approximately 5000 residents in the heart of rural Bedfordshire. The Town has an historic Georgian Market Square which is the heart of the Town. There are many busy local shops in and around the Square including a florist, food store, newsagent, hairdressers, estate agents, butchers, Chinese take away, fish and chip shop, traditional hardware shop, chemist, veterinary surgery, hotel, bakery, post office and dental surgery, two small supermarkets, a public house and a car showroom as well as several small businesses. In the centre stands the Clock House in which is located the Town Library watched over by the Town Clock. There are also many small businesses situated in and around the town providing local employment.

Potton is a friendly town with strong artistic community. There are many theatre groups and choirs, sports clubs, community groups and social organisations for both young and old.

The Town celebrates every Christmas with a switching on of the Christmas Lights Ceremony and the Market Square is a dazzle of lights for the festive season.

Potton had its first Party on Potton ‘Big Weekend’ on the August bank holiday of 2000 and the event has continued since then every two years.  For more information and a link to the website, click on this link.

Potton Town Council’s website has lots of information about the town, its facilities, community and events.  You can find our town map here and there is a downloadable leaflet on local walks.  The Potton Town Guide is a useful source of information about the town which was printed in November 2017.
