Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a story stretching back to Roman times, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old relics and coinage unearthed in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market during the 10th Century, and relics uncovered suggest that they were settling the region most probably from the 6th Century. The commune as it was is not observed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a considerably wider area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the ensuing years and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a flourishing market town that has seen greater development in modern times.
