Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a past stretching back to the Roman era, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lays near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area show proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts discovered reveal that they were inhabiting the area perhaps from the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not described till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a significantly wider area than merely the town alone, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing through the coming generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a busy market town that has witnessed improved development in recent times.
