Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coins picked up in close proximity show evidence of this. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered imply that they were inhabiting the area in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The commune as it was was not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a much larger area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name might possibly have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be added on prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the succeeding years and the coming of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town which has seen increased development in recent years.
