Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, went through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the area possibly from the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time was not described until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a considerably bigger area than just the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could very well have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get applied up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the following decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town which has seen increased development in the past few decades.
