Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a historic past going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coins unearthed in close proximity give proof of this. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered show that they were dwelling in the area probably from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time was not referred to until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a much wider area than simply the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be appended before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow during the following generations and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prospering market town that's witnessed greater development in the recent past.
