A brief history of LutonA brief history of Luton

Luton’s was once a settlement ruled by the Anglo-Saxons who conquered the town in the 6th century and resided in a small camp-like house near the River Lea. Farming was a popular source of income to the residents of the borough; the town was also known for its marketplace, where numerous kinds of items were traded. Luton is famous for its hat making and its Vauxhall motors workshop; vehicle manufacturing first started in Luton in 1905; this was successful until it closed during 2002. Both the Romans and Anglo-Saxons ruled the town as there are artifacts left by the different invaders. Luton was renowned for trades such as brewing and malting.

During the middle ages, Luton started to improve, and there was an advancement in tools and agriculture, allowing water mills to be built. Several Churches and castles were built in order to protect religious leaders between 1137 to 1140; however, some of these buildings were later demolished. The 12th saw the construction of two new hospitals; one used to shelter and treat travellers and the poor, and the other one was used for healing principles to Mary Magdalene. The town also suffered a great fire where many buildings were destroyed; since then, every house had thatched roofs made of wood.
