Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is placed very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage found in close proximity offer proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on reveal that they were inhabiting the local area quite likely since the sixth century. The village as it was then was not discussed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a far bigger area than simply the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the ensuing years and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town which has witnessed increased development in the recent past.
