Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to Roman times, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins discovered in close proximity offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were settling the local area most probably since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was wasn't described till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a far greater area than only the town alone, and contained the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't applied prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the coming years and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop.
