Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to the Roman period, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics picked up suggest that they were residing in the area more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then was not documented until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a significantly greater area than simply the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't put in before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the succeeding decades and the building of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that's seen improved development in current times.
