Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman period, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage stumbled on in the area show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place in about the 10th Century, and artefacts found show that they were residing in the vicinity more than likely since the 6th Century. The settlement as such was not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a significantly larger area than simply the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get applied till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the succeeding generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that's witnessed improved development in the past several years.
