Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a history going back to Roman days, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage uncovered near by show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon imply that they were living in the neighbourhood perhaps since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't referred to till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a significantly wider area than only the town itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put in till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the following years and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that has seen greater development in the recent past.
