Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county boundary in between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies very close to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using a market in about the tenth century, and artifacts found suggest that they were residing in the region more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not reported until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a way larger area than only the town alone, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could quite possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be inserted up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the coming generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town that's witnessed improved development in modern times.
