Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to Roman days, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins found near by offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts discovered show that they were inhabiting the vicinity most probably since the sixth century. The village as it was isn't listed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a far wider area than only the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not appended up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing through the succeeding decades and the building of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that's seen accelerated development in the last few years.
