Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located close to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity offer proof of this. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the area possibly since the sixth century. The village as such isn't reported until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a way bigger area compared to the town alone, and contained the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not added till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the coming decades and the construction of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that has witnessed greater development in recent years.
