Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a past extending back to the days of the Romans, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is situated close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage discovered nearby show proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market in around the tenth century, and artefacts discovered show that they were inhabiting the locale more than likely from the sixth century. The village existing at this time wasn't observed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a lot greater area than only the town alone, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get inserted up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing over the following decades and the appearance of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that has seen accelerated development in modern times.
