Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historical past extending back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who created the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were settling the region in all likelihood from the sixth century. The commune as such isn't mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a way wider area compared to the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be put in up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the succeeding decades and the construction of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town which has seen increased development in recent times.
