Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county border in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the Roman era, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coinage picked up in close proximity offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon imply that they were residing in the locale possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was wasn't cited until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a much greater area than merely the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding throughout the succeeding years and the building of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town which has witnessed improved development in recent years.
