Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage extending back to Roman times, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins discovered near by offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't discussed until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a significantly wider area than merely the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not added on until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the succeeding generations and the construction of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town which has seen greater development in the recent past.
