Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to Roman times, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled on near by give proof of this. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and relics found show that they were settling the area in all probability since the 6th Century. The commune as it was is not documented until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a lot larger area than only the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added on up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding during the ensuing years and the construction of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that has witnessed increased development in recent times.
