Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the border between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a story stretching back to Roman times, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed near the Chiltern Hills and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early relics and coinage stumbled on nearby show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered show that they were settling the region quite likely since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then wasn't observed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a far wider area than just the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name may very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't included until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger throughout the ensuing generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand.
