Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage going back to Roman times, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity show proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts picked up imply that they were staying in the region most probably since the sixth century. The village existing then was not mentioned till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a considerably bigger area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name may very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be applied up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the succeeding generations and the appearance of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prospering market town that has seen improved development in the past few years.
