Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the era of the Romans, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coinage picked up near by offer evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the locale perhaps since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then isn't remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a way wider area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be put in up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the ensuing decades and the development of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's seen accelerated development in the recent past.
