Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins unearthed nearby offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered suggest that they were settling the locale in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village as it was then is not cited until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a far bigger area than just the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be included prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing during the succeeding decades and the building of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that has seen greater development in recent times.
