Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early relics and coinage stumbled on in close proximity give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market during the tenth century, and relics picked up show that they were inhabiting the area very likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was wasn't referred to until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a substantially bigger area than merely the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be added up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger through the ensuing decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a blooming market town that has seen improved development in recent years.
