Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a history extending back to the days of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found near the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early relics and coinage picked up nearby offer evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered imply that they were settling the area possibly since the 6th Century. The commune as it was is not observed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a much bigger area compared to the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could very well have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not inserted before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding through the following decades and the arrival of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that has seen improved development in current times.
