Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the Roman period, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early relics and coinage unearthed in close proximity offer evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were living in the neighbourhood more than likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then isn't discussed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a much larger area than just the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the succeeding generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town which has witnessed increased development in the recent past.
