Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a history stretching back to the days of the Romans, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins discovered near by show evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in about the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the local area quite likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing then was not listed till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a considerably bigger area than only the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be appended up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the succeeding generations and the coming of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that's seen greater development in recent years.
