Woodside is a hamlet located in the Central Bedfordshire district of Bedfordshire, England.

It is probable that the settlement was established in the early Middle Ages by the northern end of Caddington Wood (hence the name "Woodside").[1] A Baptist Church was established in the settlement in 1862,[2] while St Andrew's Anglican Church was established in Woodside as the "Slip End Mission Church" in 1878.[3]

Today, Woodside forms part of the Slip End (where the 2011 Civil Parish population was included) civil parish, and is located directly southwest of the M1 motorway. The motorway acts as the border between Woodside and the large town of Luton.
