Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the boundary between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman days, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is placed near to the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins stumbled on in close proximity offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood possibly from the 6th Century. The village existing then wasn't remarked upon till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a significantly bigger area than just the town itself, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put on till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing during the coming years and the development of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a flourishing market town that's witnessed increased development in the past several years.
