Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to the times of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there had been settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins discovered in close proximity show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created a market in about the 10th Century, and relics picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the local area undoubtedly since the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't remarked upon until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a significantly wider area compared to the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put in before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger throughout the coming decades and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town that has seen greater development in the past several years.
