Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins found in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who were using a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts found suggest that they were settling the locale in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The settlement as such was not documented until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a considerably greater area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could possibly have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the following years and the construction of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town that's witnessed greater development in the last few years.
