Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is found very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage found in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market during the tenth century, and artefacts picked up indicate that they were living in the locale almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time isn't documented until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a significantly greater area than only the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't applied up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
