Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a past extending back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it lies near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic relics and coins found near by give proof of this. The old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed show that they were living in the region most likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time wasn't remarked upon till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a lot larger area than simply the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get applied prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the following decades and the coming of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town which has witnessed increased development in recent times.
