Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman times, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is found close to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage found in close proximity give proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities picked up suggest that they were dwelling in the locale more than likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was is not listed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a far larger area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be applied prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow during the following decades and the construction of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop.
