Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman era, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed the market place in about the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were living in the vicinity almost certainly since the 6th Century. The commune as it was is not described until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a much wider area than simply the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be appended till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
