Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it can be found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins found in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were living in the region more than likely since the sixth century. The village as such was not reported until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a significantly wider area compared to the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't put on till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger throughout the coming years and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town which has seen improved development in the recent past.
