Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a story stretching back to the Roman era, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed next to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins discovered nearby show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (built by the Romans), now called the A5, went through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced a market in around the tenth century, and relics uncovered denote that they were residing in the area perhaps since the sixth century. The commune existing then is not remarked upon until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a significantly greater area than simply the town itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get included until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the following years and the appearance of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town which has seen improved development in the past few years.
