Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman days, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays near to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage discovered in close proximity show evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were settling the locale in all likelihood since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then was not documented until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a much larger area than merely the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could possibly have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be put on till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the coming decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the past few decades.
