Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is near the boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a past harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits very close to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage uncovered in close proximity give evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who introduced the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood probably from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then isn't documented till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a way greater area than merely the town itself, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not applied prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing throughout the coming generations and the development of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town which has witnessed increased development in modern times.
