Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the county boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman days, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coins unearthed in the area offer evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed show that they were inhabiting the locale almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement as such was not cited till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a far bigger area than merely the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't applied until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the succeeding decades and the arrival of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that has seen increased development in the past few decades.
