Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a history harping back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits close to the Chilterns and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins unearthed nearby give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were dwelling in the area almost certainly since the 6th Century. The village as it was wasn't listed till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a much greater area than merely the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not applied until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger during the coming decades and the coming of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prosperous market town which has witnessed increased development in modern times.
