Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies next to the Chilterns and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage found in close proximity give proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who introduced a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the locale very likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then wasn't reported till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a far larger area than only the town itself, and contained the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be put in till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding through the coming years and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town which has seen accelerated development in the past few years.
