Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about 37,000 and a history extending back to Roman times, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits very close to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage discovered near by show evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were staying in the local area very likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not referred to till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a much greater area than simply the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get applied before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the succeeding generations and the coming of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a busy market town that's seen improved development in the past few decades.
