Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found very close to the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage picked up in the area offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities picked up imply that they were inhabiting the local area in all probability from the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a way bigger area than only the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get appended till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the following years and the arrival of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town which has seen greater development in the recent past.
