Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the Roman era, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical relics and coins picked up near by offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered mean that they were residing in the neighbourhood undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not documented until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a way greater area than only the town by itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger through the ensuing decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the past several years.
