Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman days, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage uncovered in close proximity offer proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 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 followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were inhabiting the locale in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was is not referred to until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a way wider area than just the town itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get added on till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the coming generations and the coming of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that has seen greater development in the last few years.
