Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it stands near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins picked up in close proximity give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were settling the region possibly since the sixth century. The settlement as it was isn't documented until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a considerably larger area than just the town by itself, and included the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be applied prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow during the following decades and the coming of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it grow and develop.
