Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the county border in between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a history stretching back to Roman days, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is found very close to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coinage discovered near by offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who introduced the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed indicate that they were inhabiting the region more than likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time is not listed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a significantly bigger area than simply the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger through the following decades and the appearance of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that's witnessed greater development in recent times.
