Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman period, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies near to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins found in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on indicate that they were settling the vicinity most likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then wasn't discussed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a much wider area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger during the following decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be termed a growing market town which has witnessed increased development in modern times.
