Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lays near the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins picked up in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place during the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the locale undoubtedly since the sixth century. The commune existing then wasn't discussed until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a significantly bigger area compared to the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put in up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the following generations and the coming of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that's witnessed increased development in modern times.
