Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a story going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area give proof of this. The historic Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood possibly since the sixth century. The commune existing then isn't mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a substantially bigger area than just the town itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be added on up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger through the ensuing decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that's witnessed increased development in the past few years.
