Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage going back to the Roman era, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies close to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage uncovered in close proximity show evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were dwelling in the vicinity in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village as it was was not observed until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a considerably greater area compared to the town alone, and included the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name will have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not put in prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger through the coming generations and the coming of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop.
