Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary in between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the Roman era, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage found nearby offer evidence of this. The old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who developed the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were staying in the area almost certainly since the sixth century. The settlement existing then wasn't remarked upon until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a substantially bigger area compared to the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow over the succeeding generations and the coming of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a flourishing market town that's witnessed improved development in the past few decades.
