Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to 37,000 and a history going back to Roman days, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage unearthed in the area show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts found suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity very likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was is not described until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a far wider area compared to the town itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be added on till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger through the ensuing generations and the development of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a blooming market town which has witnessed improved development in the last few years.
