Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to Roman days, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage found in the area show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market during the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were residing in the vicinity possibly since the sixth century. The commune as such was not documented until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a lot larger area than simply the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may likely have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't added on prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the coming decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town that has witnessed improved development in the past few years.
