Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is situated very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage picked up in the area give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market during the tenth century, and artifacts discovered indicate that they were inhabiting the vicinity possibly since the sixth century. The settlement as such is not described until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a considerably greater area than only the town alone, and included the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not inserted up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the ensuing decades and the establishing of of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that's seen greater development in recent times.
