Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historic past extending back to the times of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins found near by offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered show that they were settling the vicinity more than likely from the sixth century. The village as it was is not observed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a way greater area than merely the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't put on up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow throughout the following generations and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop.
