Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman era, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage stumbled on near by show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in around the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were dwelling in the locale most probably since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time is not reported till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a considerably bigger area compared to the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put in until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the ensuing decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a busy market town that's witnessed increased development in current times.
