Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins found near by show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who used a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts found suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood quite possibly from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was was not referred to until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a way larger area than just the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow through the succeeding generations and the development of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow.
