Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county border between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a story stretching back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coins picked up in the area offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics picked up indicate that they were living in the locale quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not listed until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a much larger area than only the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't put in prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing during the succeeding generations and the coming of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be described as a flourishing market town that has seen accelerated development in the recent past.
