Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage found nearby give evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were staying in the local area in all probability from the 6th Century. The village existing at that time wasn't mentioned till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a substantially larger area than only the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could perhaps have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get put on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it important to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the succeeding generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand.
