Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage discovered in the area show proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were settling the area almost certainly since the 6th Century. The village as such isn't referred to until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a lot wider area than just the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put on prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger throughout the ensuing generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be described as a prosperous market town which has seen improved development in the past several years.
