Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a history extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage picked up near by offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered reveal that they were living in the vicinity probably from the 6th Century. The village as it was then isn't reported until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a substantially larger area than merely the town itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could perhaps have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be appended till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the following decades and the building of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a thriving market town which has seen improved development in the last few years.
