Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman era, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed near the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage stumbled on near by give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities found show that they were living in the vicinity quite possibly since the sixth century. The commune as such wasn't observed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a much bigger area compared to the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added on till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the succeeding decades and the establishing of of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that has seen improved development in the past several years.
