Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a heritage going back to Roman times, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lays very close to the Chilterns and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic relics and coins unearthed nearby show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the locale undoubtedly since the sixth century. The commune as it was wasn't documented till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a much bigger area compared to the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not inserted till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the ensuing years and the construction of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town which has witnessed increased development in the past several years.
