Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the times of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located near to the Chilterns and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coins unearthed in the area give evidence of this. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market in about the tenth century, and antiquities discovered denote that they were residing in the area perhaps from the 6th Century. The settlement as such isn't reported until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a much bigger area than merely the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put in till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow through the succeeding decades and the building of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve.
