Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county boundary in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a story harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is found next to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage found in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities picked up mean that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then is not reported till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a much greater area than only the town itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not inserted till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the coming generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve.
