Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the border in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to Roman times, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is placed very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage found in close proximity give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place in about the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed mean that they were inhabiting the local area in all likelihood from the sixth century. The commune as such isn't reported until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a much larger area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be included till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
