Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is situated next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins discovered nearby give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the tenth century, and artefacts found show that they were settling the area quite possibly since the sixth century. The commune as such was not cited until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a lot greater area than just the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't included till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger during the ensuing years and the arrival of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town that's witnessed accelerated development in recent years.
