Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the border in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located close to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins picked up in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market during the tenth century, and antiquities discovered suggest that they were residing in the vicinity in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time wasn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a substantially greater area than only the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get added on prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger through the following generations and the arrival of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw it grow and develop.
