Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county border in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the times of the Romans, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coins discovered near by offer evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who created the market place in about the 10th Century, and relics uncovered denote that they were inhabiting the locale quite likely from the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a lot larger area than merely the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could perhaps have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be inserted till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger throughout the ensuing decades and the coming of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prospering market town that has witnessed increased development in the past few decades.
