Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman times, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coins unearthed near by offer evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who introduced the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts found mean that they were living in the area in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time is not described till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a far greater area compared to the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name may well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get appended up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the coming years and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a bustling market town that's seen greater development in the recent past.
