Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins picked up near by show proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities picked up indicate that they were residing in the area perhaps from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then was not documented till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a substantially wider area compared to the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be applied before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the following years and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it develop and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town that's seen greater development in modern times.
