Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage found near by show proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were residing in the vicinity more than likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a far greater area compared to the town by itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get included till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the coming generations and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a thriving market town which has seen greater development in current times.
