Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about 37,000 and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it can be found next to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage found in close proximity give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the tenth century, and relics uncovered imply that they were dwelling in the region very likely from the sixth century. The commune as such isn't referred to until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a much greater area than just the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be applied till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the succeeding generations and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town that's witnessed improved development in current times.
