Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a story stretching back to the Roman period, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins discovered nearby give evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place during the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were inhabiting the local area in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village as such is not mentioned until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a considerably bigger area than simply the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get inserted until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the ensuing decades and the building of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a thriving market town that has witnessed greater development in the last few years.
