Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to Roman times, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage discovered near by offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the vicinity possibly since the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't reported till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a much larger area than only the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be added up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
