Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to the times of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lays next to the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins picked up in the area show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics discovered suggest that they were residing in the area perhaps since the sixth century. The settlement existing then was not described until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a way larger area compared to the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added on till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger through the succeeding years and the arrival of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that has seen improved development in recent years.
