Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a past going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits next to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins found in close proximity give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the region possibly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time isn't reported till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a considerably greater area compared to the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing through the succeeding years and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town that has witnessed improved development in the past few decades.
