Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a past stretching back to the times of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies very close to the Chilterns and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early relics and coins discovered in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used a market in around the 10th Century, and relics discovered show that they were inhabiting the region quite likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then wasn't mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a substantially 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 been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be appended before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing throughout the following decades and the arrival of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow.
