Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a history extending back to the Roman era, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage found in the area offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon suggest that they were inhabiting the locale more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing then was not described till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a far wider area than only the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be included before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the succeeding generations and the development of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town which has witnessed increased development in recent times.
