Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is placed next to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old relics and coinage stumbled on in the area show evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up show that they were residing in the vicinity more than likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was was not listed until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a significantly larger area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may well have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the succeeding decades and the establishing of of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prosperous market town that's seen greater development in recent times.
