A collection of conjectural drawings by local historian, artist, and a fellow town guide Tony Woodhouse.


Dunstable Town Guides are part of a new group called Historical Dunstable created together by the Friends of Priory House and Gardens, Dunstable and District Local History Society. Our first project is to publish a collection of conjectural drawings by Tony Woodhouse.

Tony is a founding member of the Town Guides, a well known historian in the town and talented artist.  Over many years he has gained a comprehensive understanding of the town’s history and in particular its archaeology and architecture.  He has used this knowledge to create accurate conjectural representations of the town’s buildings and events throughout its life.

The book was published in November 2020, and is essential for anyone who wants to know what Dunstable looked like in times past.

We are a non-profit voluntary organisation full of people passionate about local history offering walks and talks on the heritage of Dunstable for the public, clubs, societies, scouting, guiding and schools.
