Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman days, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it sits very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins picked up near by give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in about the tenth century, and artefacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the region most likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a considerably wider area than just the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get appended prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger over the ensuing decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
