Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county border in between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage found nearby offer proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were settling the region quite likely since the sixth century. The commune existing then was not discussed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a lot wider area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could perhaps have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put in until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the coming decades and the coming of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town that has witnessed increased development in recent years.
