Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage found nearby show proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place in about the 10th Century, and antiquities found suggest that they were living in the region quite likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was isn't remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a substantially wider area than merely the town alone, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not inserted prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing throughout the ensuing decades and the construction of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prospering market town which has seen increased development in recent years.
