Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage uncovered in the area offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who introduced the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics found denote that they were residing in the neighbourhood in all probability from the sixth century. The commune as it was then wasn't observed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a significantly larger area than only the town alone, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added on till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger over the coming decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prosperous market town that has seen accelerated development in modern times.
