Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a story going back to Roman times, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage discovered in the area offer evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market in around the tenth century, and relics uncovered show that they were residing in the locale quite likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing then was not referred to until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a considerably larger area compared to the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be appended before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it important to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing throughout the following generations and the appearance of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a thriving market town that's witnessed increased development in the past several years.
