Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the border betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a story stretching back to Roman times, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lies near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early relics and coinage stumbled upon nearby give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on reveal that they were living in the vicinity in all likelihood from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't listed until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a much greater area compared to the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be appended up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing through the succeeding years and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that has witnessed accelerated development in recent times.
