Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is found close to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coins uncovered in close proximity show proof of this. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were staying in the neighbourhood most probably from the sixth century. The village existing at this time isn't listed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a much greater area than only the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town might have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be put on till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger through the following years and the establishing of of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that has witnessed greater development in the last few years.
