Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated near to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage found near by give proof of this. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered show that they were settling the neighbourhood quite possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then wasn't observed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a much wider area than merely the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the succeeding generations and the arrival of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prospering market town that has witnessed accelerated development in modern times.
