Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past stretching back to Roman days, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it sits next to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early relics and coinage discovered in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in about the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered reveal that they were settling the locale in all likelihood from the sixth century. The settlement as such was not listed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a considerably bigger area than merely the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name may perhaps have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get added prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the following years and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that has witnessed accelerated development in the recent past.
