Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old relics and coins picked up in the area show proof of this. The old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics uncovered denote that they were settling the local area possibly from the sixth century. The commune existing then wasn't observed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a considerably bigger area than just the town alone, and included the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the succeeding generations and the coming of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the recent past.
