Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to the times of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found close to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins picked up near by offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place in about the 10th Century, and relics uncovered show that they were inhabiting the locale probably from the 6th Century. The village as it was wasn't mentioned until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a significantly wider area than only the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't put in until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding throughout the succeeding generations and the appearance of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a prospering market town that has witnessed improved development in the past several years.
