Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to Roman times, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies next to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins stumbled on near by offer evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon denote that they were residing in the neighbourhood quite possibly since the sixth century. The commune existing then is not documented until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a substantially larger area than just the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
