Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage discovered near by give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who developed a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were residing in the local area almost certainly from the 6th Century. The village as it was wasn't reported until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a substantially greater area than just the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name may have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get added on up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing throughout the succeeding generations and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a flourishing market town that has seen greater development in the past few decades.
