Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a story harping back to the Roman period, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is situated very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins picked up nearby offer evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market during the tenth century, and antiquities discovered show that they were inhabiting the local area in all likelihood from the sixth century. The village existing then wasn't documented until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a far greater area than merely the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be put in prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing over the succeeding decades and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town which has seen improved development in the past several years.
