Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the times of the Romans, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it sits next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage picked up in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market in about the tenth century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were inhabiting the area quite likely since the sixth century. The village existing at that time wasn't remarked upon until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a way larger area than only the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not put in until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the succeeding decades and the coming of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town that's witnessed greater development in the past few decades.
