Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lies near to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage unearthed nearby show proof of this. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up show that they were dwelling in the vicinity most probably from the sixth century. The village existing then wasn't referred to till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a much larger area than merely the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be applied up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger during the ensuing decades and the coming of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town that's seen increased development in the last few years.
