Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past harping back to Roman times, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated close to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins uncovered near by offer evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and relics found suggest that they were inhabiting the locale more than likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time isn't documented till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a substantially larger area than merely the town itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't put in up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the ensuing decades and the development of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town which has witnessed increased development in modern times.
