Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a history going back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins picked up in the area show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who introduced a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled upon suggest that they were staying in the locale quite possibly since the sixth century. The commune as such is not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a far bigger area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not put in prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger through the succeeding decades and the coming of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town that has seen increased development in modern times.
