Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage stretching back to the days of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical relics and coins stumbled on in the area show evidence of this. The old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced the market place in about the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on show that they were inhabiting the local area more than likely since the 6th Century. The village existing at this time wasn't listed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a far greater area compared to the town itself, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be put in until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow through the coming generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop.
