Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins found in close proximity show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the region almost certainly since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't documented till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a way larger area than just the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may well have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get added on till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the coming years and the appearance of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a successful market town which has witnessed improved development in current times.
