Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is placed very close to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage uncovered in close proximity give proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon reveal that they were inhabiting the region most likely since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then isn't mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a much larger area compared to the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow through the ensuing generations and the construction of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be described as a busy market town which has witnessed increased development in the last few years.
