Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a past extending back to the Roman era, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is found near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage unearthed near by give evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics discovered suggest that they were settling the locale quite likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was wasn't mentioned till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a far larger area than simply the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger through the coming generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a blooming market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the past few decades.
