Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed very close to the Chilterns and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins uncovered in the area offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered denote that they were settling the locale quite likely from the sixth century. The commune as such was not reported till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a much greater area compared to the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added on before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing through the following generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve.
