Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the area more than likely since the sixth century. The village as it was was not reported until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a considerably bigger area than only the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow throughout the ensuing years and the appearance of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a booming market town that's witnessed increased development in modern times.
