Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a story extending back to Roman times, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located near the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coins discovered near by give evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in around the tenth century, and artefacts picked up mean that they were staying in the neighbourhood more than likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time isn't referred to till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a significantly wider area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be added on before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding throughout the succeeding generations and the coming of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a prosperous market town that has seen improved development in the past several years.
