Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a story going back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage found in the area give proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and relics stumbled on indicate that they were settling the area probably since the 6th Century. The commune as it was isn't documented till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a significantly larger area than merely the town itself, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be put in until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger during the succeeding generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a successful market town which has seen accelerated development in modern times.
