Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to the Roman period, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins uncovered nearby give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at 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 around the tenth century, and artifacts found suggest that they were settling the vicinity more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was wasn't cited until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a way bigger area than just the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be added before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger through the ensuing years and the coming of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that has seen greater development in the last few years.
