Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed near the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old relics and coinage picked up nearby offer proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed imply that they were settling the locale in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time is not cited till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a lot wider area than merely the town itself, and contained the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be inserted before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the coming years and the coming of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prospering market town which has witnessed improved development in the past several years.
