Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a story extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage discovered nearby show evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were settling the local area undoubtedly since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't cited till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a far greater area compared to the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get put in prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing during the succeeding years and the arrival of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a bustling market town which has seen increased development in current times.
