Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman times, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lies next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins discovered in the area show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were settling the area quite likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time was not cited until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a far wider area compared to the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get added on before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger through the succeeding generations and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town which has seen accelerated development in the last few years.
