Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman period, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old relics and coinage found near by give proof of this. The early Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who developed a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts found show that they were living in the area very likely from the sixth century. The commune existing then isn't discussed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a much larger area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be appended until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding throughout the following generations and the development of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town that's witnessed greater development in modern times.
