Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to Roman days, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it sits near the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage stumbled on nearby give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered mean that they were settling the vicinity most likely since the sixth century. The commune existing then is not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a considerably larger area than simply the town alone, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be put on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the ensuing generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow.
