Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past stretching back to the times of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage stumbled upon nearby offer evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and relics discovered show that they were settling the local area undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The settlement as such was not cited until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a far wider area than merely the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't appended prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding throughout the following decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw it expand and develop.
