Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county boundary between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found next to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage picked up in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were settling the vicinity quite likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not discussed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a much larger area than merely the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger over the ensuing years and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prospering market town that's witnessed improved development in recent years.
