Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays near the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins unearthed near by give proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place in about the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed denote that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood in all probability from the sixth century. The commune as it was then is not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a substantially greater area than merely the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name may perhaps have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not put in prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the following years and the building of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that has witnessed greater development in the last few years.
