Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it sits next to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic relics and coins picked up in the area offer evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed imply that they were settling the vicinity probably from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was isn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a much larger area than only the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be included up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the following decades and the coming of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town that has seen greater development in recent times.
