Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately 37,000 and a past extending back to the times of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it stands near to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled upon in the area give evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon reveal that they were inhabiting the local area in all likelihood since the sixth century. The village as it was isn't observed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a significantly bigger area than merely the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name could perhaps have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be put on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding during the succeeding decades and the development of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that's seen increased development in the past few years.
