Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located very close to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins stumbled on near by show proof of this. The old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in about the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed denote that they were residing in the region quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not documented until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a way bigger area than only the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't included until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the ensuing decades and the development of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that's seen increased development in the past few decades.
