Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a history going back to the times of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historical relics and coins found near by show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood most likely from the 6th Century. The village existing at that time is not discussed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a much wider area than just the town alone, and included the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be added on until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the following decades and the arrival of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that's witnessed improved development in recent times.
