Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past stretching back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located very close to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins found in close proximity show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were settling the region more than likely since the sixth century. The commune as such is not documented till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a far bigger area than only the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added on until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger during the ensuing generations and the establishing of of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town that has seen increased development in the last few years.
