Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a history harping back to the days of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is placed near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old relics and coins found near by offer proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place in about the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on denote that they were inhabiting the region possibly from the sixth century. The commune existing then wasn't cited until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a way larger area than only the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name may possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get inserted before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing throughout the following generations and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that has seen greater development in the recent past.
