Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is found near to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins stumbled on in the area show proof of this. The early Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were residing in the local area very likely since the sixth century. The commune existing at that time was not referred to till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a substantially wider area than merely the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be added till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the ensuing decades and the coming of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that has witnessed greater development in recent times.
