Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a story extending back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is located next to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity perhaps from the sixth century. The commune as it was wasn't remarked upon until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a lot larger area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could quite possibly have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put in until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the following years and the coming of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that has witnessed accelerated development in current times.
