Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found near the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins unearthed in close proximity offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who developed the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts found imply that they were residing in the region perhaps since the sixth century. The commune as it was wasn't described until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a way larger area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added on up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow through the coming generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow.
