Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman period, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is located close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins picked up near by show proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were living in the vicinity quite possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a way greater area than only the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding throughout the ensuing years and the building of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be termed a blooming market town that's witnessed increased development in the past few decades.
