Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed close to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage picked up nearby offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and relics discovered show that they were residing in the local area almost certainly since the sixth century. The commune existing then was not described until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a substantially greater area than only the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be included until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the succeeding decades and the building of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town that has witnessed greater development in recent times.
