Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman times, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located near to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins uncovered in close proximity give evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up show that they were residing in the area perhaps since the sixth century. The commune as such was not observed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a way greater area compared to the town alone, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't included before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the ensuing generations and the coming of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a successful market town which has seen greater development in current times.
