Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage stretching back to the Roman era, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is situated close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage unearthed near by offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the locale perhaps from the sixth century. The commune as it was then wasn't listed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a way bigger area than simply the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be inserted until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the ensuing years and the establishing of of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop.
