Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage stretching back to the era of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage found in close proximity give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and relics picked up show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood most likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was was not referred to until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a substantially bigger area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be appended up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the ensuing generations and the building of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a busy market town that has witnessed accelerated development in recent times.
