Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county boundary between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to Roman times, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits near to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old relics and coins uncovered nearby offer evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts found suggest that they were residing in the locale most probably from the 6th Century. The village as such isn't remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a considerably wider area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the coming decades and the development of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town that's witnessed improved development in recent years.
