Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county border in between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the era of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins picked up near by offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who used a market in around the tenth century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were residing in the vicinity in all probability since the sixth century. The commune existing at that time is not reported until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a far larger area than simply the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get inserted before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the ensuing generations and the coming of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that has seen greater development in recent years.
