Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is situated near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coins stumbled on in the area give proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics uncovered indicate that they were living in the vicinity possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement as such is not remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a substantially bigger area than just the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't inserted prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the coming years and the arrival of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be described as a booming market town that's seen greater development in the past several years.
