Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a past going back to Roman times, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early relics and coins stumbled on in close proximity give evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market in around the tenth century, and relics stumbled on show that they were settling the area possibly since the sixth century. The commune as such is not documented until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a way bigger area than only the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could possibly have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't included before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the following years and the arrival of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop.
