Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a past harping back to Roman times, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lies close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins stumbled on in the area show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered imply that they were settling the area possibly from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then isn't mentioned till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a significantly larger area than just the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be applied until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the succeeding generations and the coming of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a successful market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the last few years.
