Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the border between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a past extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is situated very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins unearthed near by offer proof of this. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were residing in the neighbourhood most probably from the sixth century. The village existing at this time is not described till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a substantially wider area compared to the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not added prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the coming years and the establishing of of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop.
