Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the border in between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to the era of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it can be found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage unearthed nearby give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who created the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the region most likely since the sixth century. The commune as such isn't described until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a way wider area than merely the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
