Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a history going back to the times of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early relics and coins uncovered near by give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics picked up suggest that they were staying in the local area quite possibly from the sixth century. The village as it was then was not documented until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a far wider area than just the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be included till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing through the coming years and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand.
