Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the border in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it stands near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage picked up near by show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market in around the tenth century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were settling the local area more than likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was is not remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a much wider area than simply the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put on up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger throughout the ensuing decades and the coming of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a busy market town that's witnessed greater development in the recent past.
