Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage discovered in close proximity show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, came through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place in around the tenth century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were staying in the neighbourhood almost certainly from the sixth century. The village as it was then isn't listed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a considerably larger area than simply the town alone, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be included until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the following generations and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a bustling market town that's seen increased development in the past several years.
