Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman times, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it sits next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage uncovered in the area give proof of this. The early Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered reveal that they were settling the region more than likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a significantly larger area than merely the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not inserted before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the succeeding generations and the construction of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it develop and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a booming market town which has seen accelerated development in the past few years.
