Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the county boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historic past extending back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins discovered in close proximity show proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who developed the market place in around the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were residing in the local area most probably since the sixth century. The village as it was isn't cited until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a far larger area than only the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't appended until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the following generations and the coming of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop.
