Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to Roman times, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated very close to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins uncovered in the area show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place during the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were living in the vicinity quite possibly from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was wasn't described till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a far greater area than just the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put in prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger throughout the ensuing decades and the arrival of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a busy market town that has seen increased development in the last few years.
