Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the border in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman period, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed very close to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage stumbled on near by give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities found suggest that they were settling the vicinity more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not cited till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a significantly greater area than only the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may well have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be added prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing over the succeeding years and the appearance of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a thriving market town which has witnessed accelerated development in recent times.
