Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lays near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage picked up in close proximity give evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed denote that they were residing in the local area perhaps since the 6th Century. The commune as it was wasn't observed until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a much greater area than just the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added on prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger during the ensuing years and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that's seen greater development in the past few decades.
