Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the days of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is found near to the Chilterns and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage discovered in close proximity show proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics picked up denote that they were settling the vicinity most likely since the sixth century. The village as such wasn't listed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a considerably wider area than simply the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be appended up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger over the ensuing generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a flourishing market town which has seen improved development in recent years.
