Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to Roman times, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins stumbled upon near by show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed a market in around the tenth century, and relics picked up show that they were residing in the neighbourhood undoubtedly since the sixth century. The commune as it was was not cited till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a significantly bigger area than only the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be put on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing throughout the succeeding years and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw it develop and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a booming market town which has witnessed accelerated development in current times.
