Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coins found near by show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics unearthed show that they were settling the vicinity undoubtedly from the sixth century. The village existing then wasn't cited till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a way larger area than merely the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not applied until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger during the ensuing generations and the coming of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town which has witnessed greater development in recent years.
