Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage harping back to Roman days, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated near the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early relics and coinage picked up in the area offer evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were residing in the region most probably since the sixth century. The settlement existing then is not reported until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a much greater area compared to the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be applied prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the coming decades and the establishing of of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a prospering market town that has witnessed improved development in the last few years.
