Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a past extending back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is situated close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage stumbled on nearby offer evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market during the tenth century, and relics discovered reveal that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood most probably from the sixth century. The commune as such was not discussed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a lot greater area compared to the town alone, and contained the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not put in prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow over the following decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop.
