Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is placed next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coins found in the area show proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market in around the tenth century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the locale more than likely since the sixth century. The commune as such was not discussed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a far bigger area compared to the town alone, and covered the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not appended up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the succeeding generations and the development of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that's seen greater development in recent times.
