Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage uncovered in close proximity give proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the region almost certainly from the sixth century. The commune as such isn't referred to until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a much larger area compared to the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be added up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding during the following generations and the construction of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prosperous market town which has witnessed greater development in the last few years.
