Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to Roman days, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is situated near the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled upon nearby offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place in about the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the area most likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was is not discussed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a substantially bigger area than merely the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be added up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger throughout the ensuing generations and the coming of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
