Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage uncovered near by show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were staying in the neighbourhood perhaps from the 6th Century. The commune existing then wasn't listed till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a substantially greater area than merely the town alone, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name might possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be applied before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow throughout the ensuing years and the arrival of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that's seen accelerated development in the last few years.
