Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins stumbled upon nearby offer evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities found suggest that they were inhabiting the area in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then isn't discussed until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a much greater area than only the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put in till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the succeeding decades and the arrival of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a bustling market town which has seen greater development in the past several years.
