Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands next to the Chilterns and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by show proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market during the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the neighbourhood most probably since the sixth century. The village existing at that time isn't documented until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a lot greater area than simply the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not applied till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the ensuing years and the appearance of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that has witnessed increased development in the last few years.
