Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to Roman times, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage uncovered nearby show proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on indicate that they were settling the locale perhaps since the sixth century. The settlement as such isn't listed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a significantly larger area than only the town alone, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not added up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing through the following generations and the arrival of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a growing market town that's seen greater development in recent years.
