Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the times of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins uncovered in the area offer proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were residing in the vicinity quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing then isn't remarked upon till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a substantially bigger area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name may have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get included prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger throughout the succeeding years and the arrival of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a busy market town which has witnessed increased development in recent times.
