Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands near to the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage unearthed nearby show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the region most probably from the 6th Century. The settlement as such wasn't cited till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a way greater area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may well have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't added on prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger during the succeeding years and the coming of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a blooming market town that's witnessed increased development in modern times.
