Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to Roman days, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins uncovered in the area give evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place during the tenth century, and relics picked up show that they were inhabiting the area quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune existing then was not listed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a substantially greater area than simply the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be applied until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow during the ensuing years and the arrival of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that's seen improved development in the past few decades.
