Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past going back to Roman days, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coins stumbled upon in close proximity show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics stumbled upon suggest that they were staying in the locale quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune existing then was not described till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a considerably bigger area than just the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't added on up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the following decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that has seen greater development in the past several years.
