Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a history extending back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits next to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage uncovered in the area give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were settling the local area possibly from the sixth century. The commune as such isn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially larger area compared to the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not included before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the following years and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town which has seen accelerated development in recent years.
