Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins unearthed in close proximity show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were settling the region most likely from the 6th Century. The village as it was was not listed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a way bigger area than just the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be inserted until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger through the ensuing generations and the construction of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a blooming market town which has witnessed improved development in recent times.
