Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found near to the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage picked up nearby show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities found show that they were residing in the vicinity probably from the sixth century. The village as it was was not cited until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a far wider area than only the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the succeeding generations and the appearance of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town that has witnessed improved development in the past several years.
