Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the days of the Romans, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage stumbled upon near by give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who created a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity in all probability since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then was not listed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a way wider area than merely the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may well have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the following generations and the coming of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that's seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
