Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage picked up near by give evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities picked up suggest that they were residing in the locale most probably from the sixth century. The commune as it was then was not listed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a lot larger area compared to the town itself, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't added on till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger over the ensuing decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop.
