Putteridge is a small part of the Stopsley ward, in the east of Luton, England. The area spans from Jansel House, the VAT Building in Luton, up towards Butterfield's Green and Putteridge High School. The area also includes the University of Bedfordshire Putteridge Bury Campus and surrounding area, which extends into Hertfordshire. Many of the houses were built in the 1930s by Janes Builders of Luton.
The area is surrounded by green space including Butterfield's Green. Butterfield is a new industrial development currently being built. This is hoped to help boost the local economy of the area and Luton as a whole. The area is also home to one of Luton's cemeteries, The Vale.
The house at Putteridge Bury was built in the style of Chequers by architects Sir Ernest George and Alfred Yeats and was completed in 1911. The grounds were designed by Edwin L Lutyens with advice from Gertrude Jekyll.
The area of Putteridge is part of the Stopsley ward which forms part of the parliamentary constituency of Luton South, and the MP is Gavin Shuker (Labour). Stopsley is situated within the East of England (European Parliament constituency).
