Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early artifacts and coins unearthed in close proximity give evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who created the market place during the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were dwelling in the vicinity more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a much larger area compared to the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put in prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the ensuing decades and the development of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town which has witnessed greater development in the past few years.
