Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to Roman times, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it can be found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage discovered near by give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts found denote that they were settling the neighbourhood most probably since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not documented till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a substantially larger area than only the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't inserted until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the following generations and the coming of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that has seen increased development in the last few years.
