Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to the days of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coins unearthed near by offer evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood perhaps since the 6th Century. The village as such was not described until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a substantially bigger area compared to the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't inserted prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger through the succeeding generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow.
