Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about 37,000 and a history extending back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coinage found near by give evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market during the 10th Century, and relics discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the local area almost certainly since the 6th Century. The village as such isn't discussed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a significantly greater area than merely the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name might have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be inserted up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the following years and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town that has witnessed accelerated development in modern times.
