Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a history harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located near to the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artifacts and coins picked up nearby give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts found indicate that they were residing in the neighbourhood in all probability since the 6th Century. The village as it was isn't observed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a significantly wider area than merely the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not added on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding through the ensuing generations and the coming of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand.
