Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins found near by show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were living in the locale most likely since the 6th Century. The village as such is not reported until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a significantly wider area compared to the town itself, and contained the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be inserted up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the ensuing generations and the appearance of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town which has seen improved development in current times.
