Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins unearthed in the area offer evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics stumbled on indicate that they were residing in the local area in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village existing then wasn't listed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a lot bigger area than only the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the succeeding generations and the coming of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that has witnessed increased development in the recent past.
