Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays near the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coinage discovered near by offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood in all likelihood from the sixth century. The village as such is not cited till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a way bigger area than merely the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town might have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put in up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding over the succeeding years and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a thriving market town which has seen accelerated development in the past few years.
