Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the era of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is situated near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coins stumbled on near by show evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in about the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon denote that they were settling the local area more than likely from the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't described till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a considerably wider area than just the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get inserted till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the following generations and the appearance of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town which has witnessed improved development in the last few years.
