Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old relics and coins discovered in the area show proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities picked up mean that they were settling the local area quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing then was not reported until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a lot wider area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger during the following decades and the building of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
