Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage extending 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 attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays near the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage picked up nearby show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place in around the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the area in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't remarked upon until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a way wider area than only the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added on up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing through the ensuing years and the building of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town which has seen improved development in the past few years.
