Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is placed close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage found nearby give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on reveal that they were living in the area in all probability since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't referred to until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a far greater area compared to the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. 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" component was not to be inserted till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing over the ensuing generations and the building of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town that's seen improved development in the past few years.
