Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coinage stumbled on nearby give proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, came through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities found show that they were settling the vicinity most probably from the sixth century. The village existing then wasn't listed until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a lot wider area than only the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington 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" section was not to be included till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding during the coming years and the construction of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that's seen greater development in recent years.
