Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to 37,000 and a history harping back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early relics and coinage picked up in close proximity show evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts found show that they were staying in the vicinity very likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not remarked upon till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a significantly greater area than only the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may perhaps have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't inserted up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the ensuing generations and the development of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town that's seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
