Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lays near the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins found near by offer evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed show that they were settling the locale perhaps since the sixth century. The commune as such wasn't observed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a considerably larger area than just the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be put in prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger during the succeeding years and the construction of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town which has seen greater development in the last few years.
