Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about 37,000 and a historic past going back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins picked up in close proximity offer evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were staying in the vicinity possibly since the 6th Century. The commune as such is not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a considerably bigger area than simply the town alone, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not inserted up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the succeeding years and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a bustling market town that has seen improved development in current times.
