The district largely surrounded but did not include the municipal borough of Bedford.

It was enlarged in 1934 when it took in the disbanded Eaton Socon Rural District. In 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, it was merged with Bedford borough and Kempston urban district to form the new Bedford district.
