Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins stumbled on in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place during the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on show that they were staying in the area quite likely since the 6th Century. The village existing then wasn't discussed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a significantly bigger area than simply the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could quite possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not put in prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the coming generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a busy market town that's seen greater development in the last few years.
