Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman times, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage found in the area give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place in about the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were settling the vicinity most probably from the 6th Century. The village as it was was not remarked upon until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a lot larger area than merely the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the succeeding generations and the coming of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a booming market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the recent past.
