Sandy is a small market town and civil parish in Bedfordshire, England; frequently referred to as "the high mark of bedfordshire" It lies between Cambridge and Bedford, on the A1 road from 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 2mi south west of Sandy. The Riddy is a flood meadow on the Ivel and Local Nature ReserveHistoryAn archaeological dig in May 2006 revealed that the town's ancestors may date back further than 250 BC.Sandy was originally a Roman settlement and was probably an important trading centre and staging post in the Roman era. An ancient hill fort, now heavily wooded and known as "Caesar's Camp" although more commonly called "the sand hills" or "the lookout", still overlooks the town.
