Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it can be found very close to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins stumbled on nearby offer proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were inhabiting the area quite possibly from the sixth century. The village existing then was not observed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a way larger area than only the town alone, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be put on prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the coming decades and the coming of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that has witnessed greater development in current times.
