Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to Roman times, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is located near the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins discovered in the area show evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities picked up show that they were residing in the region possibly from the 6th Century. The village as such is not documented until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a significantly larger area than merely the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name could very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the ensuing decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the past several years.
