Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to Roman days, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place in around the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the locale most probably from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not listed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a lot greater area compared to the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get included prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger throughout the succeeding years and the construction of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prospering market town which has seen greater development in the past few decades.
