Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a story extending back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins discovered near by give evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market during the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were residing in the area most probably from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not reported until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a significantly wider area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not included prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
