Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it sits close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins found nearby offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place during the tenth century, and relics unearthed indicate that they were settling the locale very likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then isn't reported until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a far greater area than simply the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could very well have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't added prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow over the coming decades and the building of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town that has witnessed improved development in recent times.
