Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past going back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays close to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early relics and coins discovered in the area give evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed imply that they were dwelling in the region more than likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was wasn't described till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a far bigger area than merely the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name may likely have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not applied prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger through the succeeding decades and the development of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a successful market town that has witnessed improved development in the past few decades.
