Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to the Roman era, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins stumbled upon in close proximity offer proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed the market place in around the tenth century, and artefacts discovered imply that they were residing in the local area probably since the sixth century. The commune existing at this time was not observed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a significantly bigger area than simply the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not included up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the coming decades and the building of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
