Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the Roman era, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is located near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled upon nearby show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed the market place during the 10th Century, and relics picked up suggest that they were settling the vicinity perhaps since the sixth century. The village as such isn't referred to till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a far greater area than just the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't applied before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the coming decades and the coming of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prospering market town that's witnessed greater development in the past few decades.
