Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lies close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage discovered nearby offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities found suggest that they were living in the region undoubtedly from the sixth century. The village existing at that time is not cited until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a lot larger area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be inserted until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding during the succeeding years and the establishing of of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that's witnessed accelerated development in modern times.
