Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated near the Chilterns and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins unearthed nearby offer evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created a market in around the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on show that they were settling the area quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time was not discussed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially wider area than just the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't included before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing over the ensuing generations and the development of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that's witnessed increased development in current times.
