Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around 37,000 and a historic past going back to the era of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage discovered nearby show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who developed a market during the tenth century, and antiquities found show that they were residing in the vicinity perhaps from the sixth century. The commune existing at that time is not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a way wider area compared to the town itself, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name may likely have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get appended prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the following generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town which has seen improved development in the past few decades.
