Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman period, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it can be found next to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins stumbled on nearby offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were settling the local area probably from the 6th Century. The settlement as such wasn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a considerably larger area than simply the town itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not appended up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow over the ensuing decades and the appearance of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a successful market town that has witnessed greater development in the past few decades.
