Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a history going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is placed near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled on near by show evidence of this. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in about the tenth century, and relics discovered indicate that they were settling the local area undoubtedly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was is not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a substantially larger area than only the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the coming years and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town which has witnessed increased development in recent years.
