Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a story stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands near to the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage stumbled on near by give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on show that they were residing in the vicinity quite likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't discussed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a way larger area than just the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be added on till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger during the ensuing generations and the establishing of of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a flourishing market town that's witnessed greater development in the recent past.
