Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county boundary in between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to the era of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage found nearby show proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered indicate that they were residing in the vicinity perhaps since the 6th Century. The commune as it was wasn't remarked upon until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a considerably greater area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not added on prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the ensuing years and the building of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's seen improved development in the last few years.
