Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a story going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage found near by offer proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts found show that they were living in the local area possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time wasn't listed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a significantly greater area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the ensuing years and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that has seen increased development in recent years.
