Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a historic past harping back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage uncovered nearby give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place in about the tenth century, and relics uncovered imply that they were settling the region in all likelihood since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then wasn't remarked upon till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a considerably larger area than merely the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow during the ensuing generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town that's seen accelerated development in the past several years.
