Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to Roman times, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage uncovered nearby show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were residing in the local area most likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not cited till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a considerably bigger area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not applied before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger during the coming generations and the appearance of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a growing market town which has seen increased development in recent times.
