Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is about halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands close to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins discovered near by offer proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place in around the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were residing in the area undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then was not documented till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a significantly wider area than merely the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could very well have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't added on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it important to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger throughout the coming years and the development of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand.
