Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a history stretching back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage discovered nearby give proof of this. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed imply that they were settling the neighbourhood most likely since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was is not documented until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a far bigger area than only the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger over the coming decades and the coming of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town which has seen greater development in recent times.
