Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage uncovered in the area give evidence of this. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed mean that they were residing in the region possibly since the 6th Century. The village as it was isn't documented until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a far bigger area compared to the town alone, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be applied prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the following generations and the arrival of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that has seen greater development in the last few years.
