Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to Roman times, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies near the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins picked up in close proximity give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up show that they were settling the area more than likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not mentioned until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a much larger area compared to the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added on up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the following decades and the coming of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town which has witnessed increased development in the past several years.
