Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past extending back to the times of the Romans, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies next to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coinage picked up near by show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered mean that they were inhabiting the locale perhaps since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't discussed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a far greater area than merely the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get inserted prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing throughout the ensuing decades and the construction of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town which has seen increased development in modern times.
