Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman period, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it sits very close to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins discovered in the area show proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market in about the tenth century, and relics picked up show that they were settling the vicinity in all probability from the 6th Century. The village as it was isn't remarked upon 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, over the years, incorporated a far bigger area than just the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get put on until the twelfth 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 numerous tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the following years and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a flourishing market town that has witnessed greater development in the past several years.
