Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to the era of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage unearthed nearby show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and relics stumbled upon reveal that they were inhabiting the region perhaps from the sixth century. The settlement existing then wasn't discussed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a lot bigger area than only the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name may perhaps have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added on till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger through the ensuing decades and the coming of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a busy market town that has seen accelerated development in current times.
