Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage picked up in the area show proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities found indicate that they were settling the neighbourhood perhaps from the 6th Century. The village existing then wasn't listed until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a considerably larger area compared to the town alone, and included the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't appended till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger during the following decades and the construction of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be termed a successful market town that's seen accelerated development in recent times.
