Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early relics and coinage uncovered in the area give proof of this. The historic Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who were using a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities discovered show that they were dwelling in the area more than likely since the sixth century. The village existing at that time wasn't documented until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a considerably larger area than simply the town alone, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not included prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger during the coming decades and the appearance of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be described as a thriving market town that's seen greater development in the last few years.
