Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the times of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays near to the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old relics and coins picked up in close proximity offer proof of this. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place in around the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were settling the area in all likelihood from the sixth century. The village as it was was not listed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a much larger area than only the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get put in before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the succeeding generations and the arrival of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a flourishing market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the past several years.
