Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays very close to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage found nearby show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and relics found suggest that they were residing in the local area quite likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was was not mentioned until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a way larger area than just the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not applied before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger during the following decades and the development of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a blooming market town that has seen improved development in the past few years.
