Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to Roman times, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it can be found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins found near by give evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market in around the tenth century, and relics found show that they were settling the locale most probably since the sixth century. The commune as it was wasn't described till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a lot wider area compared to the town alone, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name may perhaps have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be included till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the succeeding decades and the development of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a successful market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the recent past.
