Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past going back to Roman times, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage picked up in close proximity offer proof of this. The historic Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were living in the area possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then was not reported until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a significantly larger area compared to the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will probably have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't put on before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger during the coming generations and the development of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town that has seen improved development in the last few years.
