Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the Roman era, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays near to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins stumbled on near by give proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who developed the market place during the tenth century, and relics discovered suggest that they were settling the local area perhaps from the sixth century. The village existing then was not discussed till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a way greater area than only the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be appended until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing through the following years and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a growing market town that's witnessed greater development in modern times.
