Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the times of the Romans, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it can be found very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled on nearby show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were residing in the local area perhaps since the sixth century. The commune as such isn't described until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a significantly greater area than just the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be inserted up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger during the succeeding decades and the construction of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a booming market town which has seen greater development in the last few years.
