Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a history harping back to Roman times, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is placed close to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins picked up near by show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed a market in about the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were dwelling in the area quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune existing at that time is not discussed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a considerably larger area than simply the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get inserted up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing throughout the following generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow.
