Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lays close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled upon in the area offer proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market during the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were inhabiting the local area most likely since the 6th Century. The village as such isn't observed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a lot bigger area than simply the town alone, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't included prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger over the succeeding decades and the building of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a busy market town that's seen accelerated development in the past few years.
