Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early relics and coins unearthed in close proximity show evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up imply that they were settling the neighbourhood very likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was then was not cited till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a lot greater area than just the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't included till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing throughout the succeeding decades and the appearance of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop.
