Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county border between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the times of the Romans, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits near the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins picked up nearby show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who created a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the vicinity more than likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't cited until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a much larger area compared to the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be added on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the coming years and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a successful market town that's seen increased development in the last few years.
