Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins stumbled upon near by offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were dwelling in the locale probably from the sixth century. The village as such was not cited till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a far larger area compared to the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get added on until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the coming decades and the development of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that has witnessed improved development in the past several years.
