Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a past going back to the days of the Romans, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins uncovered near by show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts picked up imply that they were settling the region quite possibly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a significantly larger area than merely the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be appended till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger through the succeeding generations and the appearance of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's witnessed increased development in recent years.
