Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past harping back to Roman times, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed near the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage picked up in the area give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities picked up show that they were residing in the neighbourhood probably since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then is not listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a way bigger area than merely the town itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be included prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the following decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a thriving market town which has seen increased development in recent times.
