Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the Roman period, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies near the Chilterns and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins found in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity probably since the sixth century. The commune existing then isn't referred to till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a considerably bigger area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be put in before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing over the succeeding generations and the arrival of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a booming market town that's witnessed greater development in the past few years.
