Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman times, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays very close to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage stumbled on in the area give proof of this. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who developed a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics uncovered show that they were inhabiting the region in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time isn't documented until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a far wider area than merely the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added on prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the following years and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's seen increased development in current times.
