Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the county border between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the Roman era, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located close to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage unearthed nearby show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics discovered imply that they were living in the vicinity perhaps since the 6th Century. The commune as such isn't listed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a way larger area compared to the town itself, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could quite possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not added before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the following years and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prosperous market town that has witnessed accelerated development in the past few years.
