Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is found close to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early relics and coins unearthed in the area give proof of this. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place during the tenth century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were settling the local area probably since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not referred to till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a far wider area compared to the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be appended until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger during the succeeding years and the development of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town which has witnessed increased development in the recent past.
