Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the boundary between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past extending back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is located next to the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who developed a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up denote that they were inhabiting the region in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time is not reported till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a much greater area than simply the town itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be appended before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger throughout the succeeding years and the establishing of of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town which has witnessed improved development in the last few years.
