Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located close to the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage picked up in the area give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market during the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on imply that they were inhabiting the area most probably since the sixth century. The village as it was then is not documented until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a significantly greater area than just the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be put in up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it important to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding over the ensuing generations and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that's seen improved development in the past few years.
