Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the Roman period, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage uncovered in close proximity offer evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed show that they were inhabiting the area possibly since the 6th Century. The commune existing then wasn't referred to until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially bigger area than just the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be included until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the following years and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a flourishing market town which has seen increased development in modern times.
