Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to Roman times, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies very close to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic relics and coins stumbled on in close proximity give proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities found indicate that they were inhabiting the vicinity very likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time isn't referred to till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a substantially greater area compared to the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name could quite possibly have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not put in until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

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