Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a heritage going back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coinage discovered nearby offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts found indicate that they were settling the region quite likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was then wasn't remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a substantially bigger area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not included up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the coming generations and the arrival of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the last few years.
