Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coinage discovered in the area offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics discovered suggest that they were settling the locale probably since the 6th Century. The village as such is not observed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a way larger area than merely the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not appended prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the ensuing generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town that has witnessed greater development in current times.
