Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the days of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is placed near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins stumbled upon in the area give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the neighbourhood probably since the sixth century. The village existing at this time isn't described till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a far wider area than merely the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added on till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the succeeding generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the recent past.
