Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to Roman days, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits very close to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon mean that they were settling the area quite possibly since the sixth century. The village as it was is not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a lot wider area than merely the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get inserted before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the succeeding decades and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the past few years.
