Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historical past going back to the Roman period, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins picked up nearby offer proof of this. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who set up a market during the 10th Century, and relics uncovered show that they were inhabiting the area possibly from the 6th Century. The settlement as such is not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a way wider area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could quite possibly have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be appended till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the coming years and the development of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town which has seen greater development in recent times.
