Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a history stretching back to Roman times, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins uncovered near by show evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were residing in the vicinity most probably from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time was not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a considerably bigger area than only the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name may have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be put on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the succeeding generations and the development of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be described as a booming market town that has witnessed improved development in the past few decades.
