Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to Roman times, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage found near by show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed reveal that they were inhabiting the area probably from the 6th Century. The commune as such isn't reported until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a far greater area than only the town alone, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get inserted before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
