Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county boundary in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a heritage harping back to Roman times, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lies very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coins stumbled upon nearby give proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place during the tenth century, and relics discovered show that they were staying in the area almost certainly from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then isn't referred to till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a significantly greater area than simply the town itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding during the succeeding generations and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town which has seen greater development in modern times.
