Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is near the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to Roman days, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins unearthed in the area give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who introduced the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were residing in the region in all likelihood since the sixth century. The village as such is not listed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a substantially wider area compared to the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't appended till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the following generations and the establishing of of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a successful market town which has seen increased development in the past several years.
