Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coinage discovered near by offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place in about the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on imply that they were inhabiting the locale perhaps since the 6th Century. The commune as such was not observed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a far bigger area compared to the town alone, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger through the succeeding decades and the development of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a successful market town that's seen greater development in the past several years.
