Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is found near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old relics and coinage uncovered near by show proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities discovered show that they were settling the local area very likely since the sixth century. The settlement as such wasn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a considerably greater area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may likely have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't applied before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

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