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 in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a past extending back to the Roman period, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity give proof of this. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market during the tenth century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were residing in the area possibly since the sixth century. The village as it was isn't documented until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a lot wider area than merely the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put in up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the succeeding generations and the building of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that's seen increased development in the last few years.
