Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the boundary between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it stands very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and relics discovered suggest that they were settling the vicinity very likely from the 6th Century. The village as it was is not discussed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a significantly greater area than merely the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name may perhaps have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger over the ensuing generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a flourishing market town which has seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
