Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman days, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies very close to the Chilterns and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage stumbled on near by offer proof of this. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who developed the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon imply that they were settling the vicinity probably from the 6th Century. The commune as such was not referred to till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a significantly larger area than only the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be inserted up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger throughout the following generations and the coming of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town which has seen greater development in the past several years.
