Bedfordshire is a county in England . Bedfordshire borders the counties of Cambridgeshire , Northamptonshire , Buckinghamshire (with Milton Keynes ) and Hertfordshire .

Luton was part of the county until 1997, when it became a Unitary Authority . On April 1, 2009, as part of an administrative reform, the Bedfordshire County Council, which was then based in Bedford , was dissolved. Since then, Bedfordshire has only existed as a ceremonial county with the administratively independent Unitary Authoritys Luton, Central Bedfordshire and Bedford . The former districts of Mid Bedfordshire and South Bedfordshire were combined to form the new UA Central Bedfordshire and Bedford was raised from a district to a UA.
