Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman days, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it can be found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins found near by offer evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in about the tenth century, and antiquities picked up suggest that they were staying in the region quite likely since the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not observed until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a significantly wider area than merely the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't inserted up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding during the ensuing years and the arrival of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town which has witnessed increased development in the past few decades.
