Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a past extending back to the Roman era, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is located near to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who developed the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts found show that they were residing in the area probably since the 6th Century. The village existing then isn't documented till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a lot larger area than just the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be inserted till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding throughout the succeeding generations and the development of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be described as a bustling market town that has seen greater development in recent times.
