Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands near the Chilterns and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by offer evidence of this. The old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics stumbled upon denote that they were residing in the vicinity quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not cited until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a considerably greater area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get put in prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding throughout the coming decades and the coming of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a growing market town that has seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
