Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the county border between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a story going back to Roman times, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is situated very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins found nearby show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, went through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the tenth century, and relics discovered indicate that they were residing in the vicinity in all probability from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not discussed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a far bigger area compared to the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could quite possibly have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not inserted until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the coming years and the building of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that has seen increased development in recent times.
