Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman era, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage stumbled upon nearby show evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics uncovered mean that they were residing in the local area most likely since the 6th Century. The village existing at this time is not cited until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a much larger area than merely the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put on until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger over the coming years and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town which has seen greater development in the last few years.
