Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman period, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it sits close to the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins unearthed nearby offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities picked up suggest that they were settling the region most probably since the 6th Century. The village existing at this time was not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a lot larger area than just the town alone, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the following generations and the building of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a growing market town which has witnessed increased development in the past several years.
