History of Luton

Luton is a large town situated in the East of England situated on the River Lea founded by the Anglo-Saxons in the 6th Century. 

Luton was once known as Loitone, Leueton and as Lintone amongst other names.

By 1240 the town had an annual market for surrounding villages each year and from 1338 the town’s growth led to a second fair each year. 

There was a great fire in 1336 which destroyed much of Luton but was soon rebuilt. 

In the 17th century hat-making became a big industry in Luton, and by the 18th century it dominated the town as its only significant industry. 

In the 19th century the town grew strongly, and its population grew from 3,095 to almost 39,000 in the space of 100 years. The Construction of a Railway was essential to its growth and was opened in 1860. 

In the year 930 the Church of St Mary’s was built, over the centuries the Church has been rebuilt and refurbished, and It is now considered a great example of medieval architecture.
