Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a story harping back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage stumbled on nearby offer proof of this. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who created a market in around the tenth century, and relics unearthed show that they were settling the area probably since the sixth century. The commune as it was is not reported till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a significantly larger area than only the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the coming generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that's seen greater development in the past several years.
