Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early relics and coinage discovered in close proximity show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who created the market place in about the tenth century, and relics stumbled on imply that they were dwelling in the locale most probably since the sixth century. The settlement existing then is not documented until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a substantially wider area than simply the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
