Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the boundary in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a past going back to Roman days, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage found near by offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics picked up indicate that they were residing in the locale more than likely since the 6th Century. The settlement as such was not mentioned until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a substantially bigger area than merely the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't appended till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow over the succeeding generations and the arrival of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop.
