Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to Roman days, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity show evidence of this. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the vicinity probably since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time isn't discussed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a substantially bigger area than simply the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name could very well have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not inserted until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow over the coming generations and the coming of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town which has seen greater development in modern times.
