Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the Roman period, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is placed next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage found nearby show proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon indicate that they were staying in the locale most probably from the sixth century. The commune existing then isn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a significantly greater area than merely the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not inserted until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger over the ensuing years and the establishing of of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and grow.
