Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays near the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic relics and coins picked up in close proximity offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years ago, 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 antiquities stumbled upon show that they were dwelling in the area undoubtedly from the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not reported till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a substantially larger area than only the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't inserted before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding through the coming decades and the development of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop.
