Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays near to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage found nearby give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered indicate that they were settling the locale most probably since the sixth century. The commune as it was then is not listed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a much bigger area compared to the town alone, and covered the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not applied until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the ensuing decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that's seen improved development in recent times.
