Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a history going back to Roman days, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it sits near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early relics and coins found in the area give proof of this. The old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered imply that they were settling the region more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a far larger area than merely the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't appended before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the following years and the coming of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a busy market town which has seen greater development in modern times.
