Our parish lies on the edge of the Chilterns and some 500 feet above sea level. We are one mile from London Luton Airport. The area is steeped in history with settlements going back some 5,000 years and there have been many excavations and Roman finds.
The church opened in 1950 and has had a strong sense of community ever since. We are blessed to have a parish school (Sacred Heart Primary) right on our doorstep and a secondary/sixth form school (Cardinal Newman) in the town.
