Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past extending back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is situated very close to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins discovered nearby show evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who developed a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics picked up mean that they were inhabiting the region more than likely from the sixth century. The commune as it was then is not observed till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a far larger area than only the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't included till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the coming years and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town that has witnessed improved development in the past few years.
