Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a story stretching back to Roman times, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins picked up in the area give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up a market in around the tenth century, and artifacts found suggest that they were staying in the vicinity most probably since the sixth century. The village as it was then isn't reported until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a much greater area than simply the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get added up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the succeeding years and the coming of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prosperous market town that has witnessed increased development in recent times.
