Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to the times of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins stumbled upon in the area offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who used a market during the tenth century, and relics picked up suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood almost certainly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not documented till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a far bigger area than merely the town itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will probably have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be inserted before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the ensuing decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a flourishing market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the recent past.
