Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to Roman days, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage found near by give evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts picked up show that they were residing in the area most likely from the sixth century. The commune as it was then is not listed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a much wider area than simply the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't included until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding during the following decades and the construction of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town which has seen greater development in recent times.
