Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the Roman era, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it can be found next to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins uncovered near by show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place in about the tenth century, and relics picked up suggest that they were settling the local area in all probability since the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time wasn't listed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a considerably larger area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't appended till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the coming generations and the arrival of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a booming market town that's seen greater development in recent times.
