Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a history harping back to Roman times, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it stands next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins stumbled upon nearby give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who created a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics picked up indicate that they were settling the local area probably from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not reported till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a significantly larger area than only the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't inserted up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger over the ensuing generations and the development of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that has witnessed greater development in recent times.
