Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman period, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed next to the Chilterns and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, came through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon denote that they were living in the locale more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time was not observed until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a way wider area than simply the town alone, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be added on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the following years and the appearance of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that's witnessed greater development in the past few decades.
