Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a history extending back to the era of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands next to the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historical relics and coins discovered in the area give evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon suggest that they were settling the local area most probably from the sixth century. The village as it was was not listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a substantially bigger area compared to the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be put in till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding throughout the following decades and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a successful market town which has seen greater development in current times.
