Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a story going back to Roman times, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage unearthed in close proximity give evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market in about the tenth century, and antiquities discovered suggest that they were dwelling in the locale more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was is not reported until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a substantially greater area than just the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not inserted up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the succeeding years and the building of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's seen increased development in recent years.
