Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a past stretching back to the days of the Romans, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage stumbled upon in the area offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place in around the tenth century, and relics stumbled on show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood very likely since the 6th Century. The village as such is not cited till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a substantially greater area than only the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't applied until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the ensuing years and the building of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a successful market town which has witnessed improved development in recent times.
