Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a past extending back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it sits near to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who developed a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities picked up suggest that they were settling the area almost certainly since the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time wasn't listed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a considerably bigger area compared to the town alone, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't applied up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the following years and the coming of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that's witnessed improved development in modern times.
