Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a story harping back to the era of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated near the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage found in the area give evidence of this. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market in around the 10th Century, and relics unearthed imply that they were living in the region in all probability since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not reported until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a significantly larger area than simply the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could possibly have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get appended up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding during the coming years and the arrival of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town that's witnessed greater development in the recent past.
