Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the era of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found near to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins found in the area give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in about the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon imply that they were staying in the neighbourhood in all probability from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then isn't cited until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a considerably bigger area than only the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name might possibly have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the following decades and the coming of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a thriving market town that's witnessed greater development in recent years.
