Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a story harping back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it can be found close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic relics and coins uncovered in the area show proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market in around the tenth century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were settling the area perhaps since the sixth century. The commune as it was was not observed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a lot bigger area than merely the town 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 meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the succeeding years and the development of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town which has seen greater development in the last few years.
