Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman times, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins found nearby give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon denote that they were residing in the local area quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time wasn't reported until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a far bigger area than only the town itself, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be inserted up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the ensuing decades and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that has witnessed increased development in recent times.
