Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a history going back to Roman days, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands close to the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins stumbled upon in the area offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon imply that they were dwelling in the locale possibly from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then isn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a much larger area than just the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't included until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the ensuing decades and the establishing of of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a booming market town that has witnessed accelerated development in recent years.
