Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to Roman days, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found next to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage uncovered in close proximity give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who used a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities found show that they were living in the locale almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time isn't described until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a substantially greater area compared to the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be included prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing during the coming years and the development of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be described as a thriving market town which has witnessed greater development in modern times.
