Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage discovered in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were settling the region very likely since the sixth century. The commune as such was not described until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a far larger area than only the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be appended until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing over the ensuing generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town that has seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
