Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a historic past stretching back to the Roman period, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled upon show that they were staying in the neighbourhood in all probability from the 6th Century. The village as it was wasn't discussed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a far bigger area than merely the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be inserted prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding throughout the following generations and the construction of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's witnessed greater development in the past few decades.
