Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the Roman period, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled on in the area show proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market during the tenth century, and antiquities found show that they were settling the area very likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time isn't listed until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a considerably larger area than simply the town itself, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could perhaps have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put in until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger throughout the succeeding years and the appearance of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the past several years.
