Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a historic past going back to the days of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located near the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coins found nearby give evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in about the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on show that they were settling the vicinity quite possibly since the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time wasn't discussed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a substantially bigger area than merely the town alone, and included the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't appended up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding throughout the ensuing decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that's seen greater development in the recent past.
