Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the region probably since the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not described until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a way larger area than merely the town alone, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not appended up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the following years and the building of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town that's seen increased development in the recent past.
