Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a heritage harping back to Roman times, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage stumbled on in the area show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The village existing at that time wasn't listed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a substantially greater area than only the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be included up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow over the coming years and the coming of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop.
