Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman period, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is placed near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins unearthed in the area offer evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics picked up suggest that they were settling the local area perhaps since the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time wasn't referred to till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a substantially wider area than merely the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger throughout the succeeding generations and the building of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that has seen accelerated development in modern times.
