Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to the Roman period, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lays very close to the Chiltern Hills and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by give proof of this. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood very likely from the 6th Century. The village existing at that time wasn't remarked upon till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a lot larger area than only the town alone, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could quite possibly have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't applied prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the ensuing decades and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a busy market town that's seen greater development in the recent past.
