Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the Roman era, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans will 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 they who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were residing in the vicinity very likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was wasn't reported until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a substantially larger area compared to the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be added on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow through the coming generations and the arrival of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand.
