Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to the era of the Romans, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins stumbled on near by give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities picked up show that they were residing in the locale almost certainly since the sixth century. The commune as it was is not referred to till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a much bigger area than merely the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name might have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be inserted up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the succeeding generations and the development of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town which has witnessed improved development in current times.
