Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated next to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins found in the area offer proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who created the market place in about the tenth century, and relics found denote that they were inhabiting the region probably from the sixth century. The settlement existing then isn't observed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a way greater area than simply the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be inserted up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the succeeding generations and the construction of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that has seen greater development in modern times.
