Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the era of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is placed next to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins unearthed near by show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed denote that they were residing in the area quite possibly from the sixth century. The settlement existing then wasn't described until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a much greater area than only the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get included till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the following decades and the arrival of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be described as a busy market town that has witnessed improved development in modern times.
