Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated near to the Chilterns and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old relics and coinage uncovered near by give evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the area very likely since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then wasn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a significantly bigger area than just the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't appended till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
