Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the era of the Romans, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found near to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage found in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity perhaps since the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't described until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a significantly wider area compared to the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name may have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be added on until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the coming years and the arrival of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town that has seen increased development in the past few years.
