Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is near the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity show proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced a market during the tenth century, and artifacts discovered denote that they were residing in the area perhaps from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not documented till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a way bigger area compared to the town itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name may very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get added prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding through the coming generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town that's witnessed increased development in the past few years.
