Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a historic past harping back to Roman days, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage discovered near by give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were settling the region almost certainly since the sixth century. The village existing then was not described until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a way bigger area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put in prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the ensuing decades and the appearance of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a busy market town that's seen accelerated development in recent times.
