Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to Roman days, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it can be found next to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity show proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities picked up show that they were staying in the vicinity possibly since the 6th Century. The commune as such isn't discussed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a considerably larger area than just the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be included prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
