Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to the Roman period, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is situated near the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old relics and coinage found near by give evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market in about the tenth century, and artifacts discovered denote that they were inhabiting the area in all probability since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a way larger area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not added until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing throughout the following generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it grow and develop.
