Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage unearthed nearby offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 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 after the Romans, and it was them who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics picked up suggest that they were residing in the locale in all likelihood from the sixth century. The commune existing at this time was not cited till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a substantially greater area than merely the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not put in till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding over the succeeding decades and the establishing of of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
