Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a heritage going back to Roman days, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it lays close to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there were settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage discovered near by give evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced a market in around the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered indicate that they were settling the local area probably from the sixth century. The village existing then was not cited until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a much bigger area compared to the town itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't included till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the ensuing years and the building of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town that has seen greater development in modern times.
