Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman days, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies next to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coins unearthed in the area offer evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were settling the neighbourhood most likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as such isn't cited till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a considerably larger area than just the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be put on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the ensuing generations and the coming of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a bustling market town that has witnessed improved development in current times.
