Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it can be found next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins unearthed in close proximity show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered denote that they were residing in the local area in all likelihood from the sixth century. The commune existing then was not cited till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a lot greater area than just the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put in up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the following generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that's seen greater development in modern times.
