Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to Roman days, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands near the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage picked up near by show proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts found indicate that they were living in the area more than likely from the sixth century. The settlement as such wasn't described till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a considerably larger area than just the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name will probably have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't appended till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing during the following decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop.
