Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman era, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coinage uncovered in close proximity show proof of this. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market during the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon show that they were settling the region more than likely from the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't described till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a way larger area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be put in before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the ensuing generations and the coming of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
