Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a history going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins stumbled upon nearby give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, came through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up show that they were dwelling in the vicinity possibly from the 6th Century. The commune as it was is not described till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a way larger area than only the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could very well have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't put on prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the succeeding generations and the coming of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be described as a thriving market town which has seen accelerated development in modern times.
