Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past harping back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage picked up in the area offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who developed the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were settling the local area perhaps since the sixth century. The commune existing then wasn't documented till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a way bigger area compared to the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't added up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
