Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a history harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins stumbled on in the area give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market in about the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon suggest that they were living in the local area more than likely since the sixth century. The commune existing at this time was not reported until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a significantly greater area than only the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't put in up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the following generations and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a prosperous market town that's witnessed improved development in modern times.
