Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a past stretching back to the era of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coins uncovered near by offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the vicinity quite likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was then was not documented till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a significantly greater area than merely the town itself, and included the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't inserted until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger during the succeeding decades and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve.
