Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the times of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage discovered in close proximity give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts discovered show that they were settling the locale probably from the sixth century. The village as it was then was not discussed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a considerably bigger area compared to the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added on prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding through the following decades and the construction of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand.
