Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a story going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity give evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (built by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who were using a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered show that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood quite likely from the sixth century. The village as it was then isn't mentioned until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a far bigger area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get put in up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing through the ensuing generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand.
