Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman era, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located near the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the local area perhaps from the sixth century. The commune as it was was not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a lot greater area than only the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be put on up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding over the succeeding years and the development of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prospering market town that's witnessed improved development in the past few years.
