Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins picked up near by give proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were inhabiting the area perhaps since the 6th Century. The village as such was not referred to till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a way greater area compared to the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be appended until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding over the coming years and the development of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town that has seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
