Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there were settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins found in the area show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the tenth century, and relics stumbled on indicate that they were dwelling in the vicinity quite possibly from the 6th Century. The village existing at this time was not listed until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a way wider area than just the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get applied before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the following years and the construction of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that's witnessed improved development in the recent past.
