Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is found next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins discovered in the area show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics found suggest that they were dwelling in the locale perhaps since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then wasn't cited till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a substantially greater area compared to the town itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name might possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put on till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the succeeding generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that has witnessed greater development in the past few decades.
