Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it stands close to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old relics and coinage picked up in close proximity show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in about the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed reveal that they were living in the locale in all probability since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then wasn't discussed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a lot greater area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't included up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the succeeding generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a blooming market town that has witnessed improved development in the past several years.
