Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to Roman times, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins picked up in close proximity offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the region quite likely since the sixth century. The commune existing at that time is not mentioned until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a considerably larger area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not added on until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the ensuing years and the establishing of of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a growing market town that has seen improved development in recent times.
