Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a story stretching back to the Roman era, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is located very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins uncovered near by show evidence of this. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market during the 10th Century, and relics discovered mean that they were settling the region most likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not referred to until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a substantially wider area than only the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get included up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger through the ensuing decades and the appearance of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prospering market town that has seen greater development in current times.
