Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a history harping back to Roman days, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place in about the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were staying in the local area perhaps from the sixth century. The village as it was then was not referred to until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a lot bigger area than just the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get appended until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger throughout the coming generations and the appearance of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a flourishing market town that has witnessed increased development in current times.
