Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it can be found close to the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins discovered nearby offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were settling the vicinity most likely since the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't cited until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a significantly bigger area than only the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be inserted prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow over the succeeding generations and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow.
