Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage discovered in the area give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market during the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were settling the area in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time isn't referred to till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially greater area than just the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could perhaps have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not applied till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing over the ensuing generations and the coming of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a booming market town which has seen improved development in the last few years.
