Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it stands near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins picked up in the area offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on imply that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village as it was is not referred to till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a substantially greater area than only the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not included up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger over the following generations and the development of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town which has witnessed increased development in the last few years.
