Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman times, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it stands close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins unearthed in close proximity give evidence of this. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced a market in about the 10th Century, and artefacts found suggest that they were staying in the region in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The commune as it was was not observed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a far bigger area than simply the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get put on till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing over the ensuing decades and the arrival of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a bustling market town which has seen increased development in the past few years.
