Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the times of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins found in the area offer proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who developed the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood very likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time wasn't observed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a much larger area than merely the town itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow during the following decades and the construction of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop.
