Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a heritage extending back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lays next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins found near by show evidence of this. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts found suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity probably from the 6th Century. The village as such isn't cited till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a much bigger area than only the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put on up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger during the ensuing years and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that's witnessed greater development in the recent past.
