Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it sits near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early relics and coinage discovered near by give proof of this. The early Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics unearthed reveal that they were residing in the vicinity perhaps since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't reported till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a way greater area than only the town itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be applied up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding over the following generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a busy market town that has witnessed greater development in the recent past.
