Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to Roman times, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found very close to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage picked up in close proximity give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on indicate that they were settling the vicinity very likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then was not observed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a significantly bigger area than only the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get applied up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger during the coming decades and the building of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that's witnessed increased development in the last few years.
