Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins picked up in the area give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market in around the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered indicate that they were inhabiting the local area very likely since the sixth century. The village as it was then isn't listed until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a significantly greater area compared to the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not applied until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding through the ensuing decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a blooming market town that has witnessed accelerated development in modern times.
