Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coinage unearthed near by show evidence of this. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market during the tenth century, and relics stumbled on show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood most likely since the sixth century. The village as such isn't listed until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a much bigger area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't appended until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow through the ensuing generations and the building of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that has seen greater development in modern times.
