Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage unearthed near by give evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would 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 a market during the tenth century, and artifacts found show that they were inhabiting the region very likely from the sixth century. The commune as such was not discussed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a significantly larger area than only the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger during the succeeding years and the coming of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a successful market town that has seen greater development in current times.
