Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the times of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins picked up near by show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed denote that they were living in the vicinity almost certainly since the 6th Century. The village as it was then is not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a significantly wider area than just the town alone, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get inserted prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the following decades and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town which has witnessed accelerated development in modern times.
