Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage extending back to Roman times, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old relics and coins stumbled upon in the area show evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts discovered show that they were residing in the neighbourhood most probably since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then isn't documented until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a considerably bigger area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name could quite possibly have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not put in till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the following years and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town that's seen accelerated development in the recent past.
