Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a historic past going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it can be found close to the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage stumbled on nearby show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were residing in the neighbourhood quite possibly since the sixth century. The commune existing then was not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a way greater area than simply the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing over the succeeding generations and the construction of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be termed a flourishing market town that has seen increased development in the past few years.
