Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a past stretching back to Roman times, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coins found in close proximity give proof of this. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in around the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the area most probably since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then wasn't described until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a much larger area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name will probably have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be put on prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the ensuing years and the appearance of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that has seen increased development in recent times.
