Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated close to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins stumbled on in the area give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled upon show that they were staying in the neighbourhood perhaps from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not discussed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a far larger area than just the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be included before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the following decades and the coming of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's seen improved development in the past several years.
