Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historic past stretching back to the Roman era, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old artefacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed mean that they were living in the neighbourhood in all likelihood since the sixth century. The settlement as it was wasn't discussed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a substantially greater area than only the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be applied before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it important to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the coming generations and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prospering market town that's seen increased development in the past few decades.
