Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a past harping back to Roman days, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who developed a market during the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon suggest that they were inhabiting the local area perhaps since the sixth century. The commune existing at this time wasn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a much bigger area than simply the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be inserted before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger during the coming years and the coming of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a flourishing market town that has seen improved development in the last few years.
