Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to the Roman era, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated near the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins stumbled on in the area offer evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years back, 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 the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon indicate that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood most probably since the sixth century. The settlement as it was isn't listed till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a much greater area than just the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not applied till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
