Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to Roman times, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands close to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coins stumbled on near by offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were residing in the area quite likely from the sixth century. The commune existing at this time is not described until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a considerably bigger area than merely the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get included till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger through the succeeding decades and the arrival of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow.
