Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it stands near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coins stumbled upon in the area give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market during the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered mean that they were staying in the area very likely from the sixth century. The commune as it was wasn't discussed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a much larger area than only the town alone, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name will have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't included before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger throughout the succeeding generations and the construction of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prospering market town that has witnessed accelerated development in the recent past.
