Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the Roman era, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits near the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coins stumbled upon in close proximity show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on indicate that they were staying in the locale most probably since the 6th Century. The commune as it was isn't mentioned until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a lot wider area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not applied until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger during the ensuing generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the past several years.
