Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who developed the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were dwelling in the locale probably since the sixth century. The commune existing at this time isn't remarked upon till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a substantially greater area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name will have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added on up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the succeeding decades and the development of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town which has seen greater development in current times.
