Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to Roman days, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage picked up near by give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities found show that they were residing in the neighbourhood most likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing then was not discussed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a significantly wider area than merely the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be appended before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the ensuing years and the arrival of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town which has witnessed greater development in the past several years.
