Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the Roman period, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it stands near to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical relics and coinage discovered in the area offer evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed reveal that they were inhabiting the vicinity quite possibly since the 6th Century. The village as such was not discussed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a much bigger area than just the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get appended prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger through the following generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop.
