Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage uncovered in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood perhaps since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not mentioned until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a much bigger area compared to the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put in before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding through the following years and the coming of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that has seen increased development in the last few years.
