Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the era of the Romans, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies next to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage stumbled upon near by show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed imply that they were staying in the region possibly since the sixth century. The commune as it was then isn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a lot wider area than just the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get added on prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding through the succeeding years and the coming of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop.
