Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to Roman days, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage uncovered near by show evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed reveal that they were dwelling in the vicinity perhaps from the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time is not reported till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a far bigger area than simply the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put in till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding throughout the following decades and the construction of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town that's seen increased development in the last few years.
