Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the county boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a history harping back to the era of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays near the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins found near by offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who introduced the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts discovered denote that they were inhabiting the region in all likelihood since the sixth century. The village as it was isn't documented until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a lot larger area than simply the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be appended prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the following years and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's seen increased development in the past few decades.
