Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a past extending back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed near the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins stumbled upon in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts found show that they were settling the region quite likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not cited until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a substantially greater area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be inserted till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow throughout the succeeding decades and the establishing of of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a growing market town that's seen greater development in the recent past.
