Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the era of the Romans, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits next to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coinage picked up nearby give evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon suggest that they were residing in the area possibly from the 6th Century. The village as such wasn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a much larger area compared to the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may perhaps have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it important to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the following decades and the appearance of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prospering market town that's seen improved development in current times.
