Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a heritage going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it can be found close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins found in close proximity offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who created the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were dwelling in the vicinity probably since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then isn't discussed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a significantly bigger area than merely the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name will probably have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be appended till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the coming years and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
