Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it can be found very close to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity show proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts found mean that they were settling the locale quite likely since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then isn't listed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a considerably bigger area than only the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could quite possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't included prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the succeeding generations and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be termed a successful market town that has witnessed accelerated development in recent times.
