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 bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman days, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is situated very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins unearthed in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics picked up imply that they were residing in the local area possibly since the sixth century. The village as such is not described till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a significantly greater area than merely the town alone, and integrated 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" component did not get applied till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger through the following decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw it develop and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town which has witnessed greater development in recent years.
