Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed near the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins uncovered near by give proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (built by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who used a market in around the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon suggest that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood quite likely since the 6th Century. The village existing then wasn't cited until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a considerably larger area than simply the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get included till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the succeeding decades and the development of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town which has seen improved development in recent years.
