Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it can be found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage picked up nearby offer evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were dwelling in the area quite possibly from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not discussed until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a way wider area compared to the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not appended till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger throughout the ensuing years and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a prospering market town that has witnessed increased development in recent times.
