Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is situated next to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage found in the area give evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts picked up show that they were residing in the region most probably from the 6th Century. The village as such isn't reported till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a much wider area than just the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding over the following generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be described as a busy market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the past few decades.
