Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county border betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman period, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is placed very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage picked up near by give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics unearthed show that they were residing in the region almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time wasn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a substantially greater area compared to the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get added on up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding through the following years and the development of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town that's seen improved development in recent years.
