Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity show proof of this. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities found mean that they were inhabiting the locale almost certainly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was isn't observed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a considerably wider area compared to the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may likely have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't inserted until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding during the coming years and the building of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop.
