Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to Roman times, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed next to the Chilterns and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coinage picked up in the area give proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the region quite likely since the sixth century. The village as it was then isn't mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a far bigger area than only the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get inserted up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the ensuing decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a successful market town that's witnessed improved development in the past several years.
