Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past extending back to the era of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands near the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage found nearby give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the local area quite possibly since the 6th Century. The village existing then is not listed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a significantly bigger area than only the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added on prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the ensuing generations and the development of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that's seen increased development in the past few decades.
