Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage stretching back to Roman days, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it can be found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage uncovered nearby show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities found show that they were living in the region quite likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time was not cited until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a lot greater area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't inserted till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the succeeding generations and the appearance of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop.
