Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a past going back to the days of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered imply that they were inhabiting the vicinity in all probability from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was isn't mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a substantially greater area than only the town alone, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get included till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing through the ensuing decades and the appearance of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
