Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the Roman period, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits close to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage discovered in the area offer proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the locale very likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing then was not observed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a considerably larger area than only the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be put on before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it important to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the ensuing generations and the coming of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a busy market town that has witnessed greater development in the past several years.
