Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed near to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old relics and coinage unearthed in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place in around the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were settling the vicinity probably from the sixth century. The village as such is not referred to till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a way bigger area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name could have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be inserted until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the ensuing generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a thriving market town that's seen accelerated development in current times.
