Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county border in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage picked up in the area show proof of this. The old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the local area most likely since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then isn't cited until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a significantly wider area than just the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name might have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get put on up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
