Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage picked up in the area offer proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market during the tenth century, and artefacts found denote that they were inhabiting the local area most likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not reported until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a substantially bigger area than just the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't put in till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow through the ensuing years and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town which has seen improved development in the last few years.
