Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard is near the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman times, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it can be found very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins discovered in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon suggest that they were living in the region almost certainly since the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not discussed until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a significantly wider area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name could possibly have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't added up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the ensuing years and the appearance of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a booming market town which has witnessed increased development in modern times.
