Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county border betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands near to the Chiltern Hills and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins discovered in the area give proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were residing in the locale perhaps from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time is not reported till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a significantly larger area than only the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't put on before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing over the following decades and the appearance of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow.
