Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a story going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays near the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins picked up in the area give proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts picked up denote that they were living in the area quite possibly from the 6th Century. The village existing at that time wasn't reported until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a substantially larger area than just the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be included before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the coming decades and the appearance of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that has seen increased development in recent years.
