Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately 37,000 and a past extending back to the Roman period, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lays near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage unearthed nearby give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities found show that they were staying in the locale almost certainly from the 6th Century. The settlement as such wasn't observed until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a substantially bigger area than just the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be put in until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the succeeding generations and the coming of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a blooming market town that has seen accelerated development in the last few years.
