Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the days of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it stands near the Chilterns and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage discovered near by show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who used a market in about the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were settling the locale in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time is not observed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially larger area than simply the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be included till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding throughout the succeeding generations and the development of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a blooming market town that's witnessed improved development in the recent past.
