Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman days, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is placed very close to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins unearthed near by give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were residing in the area almost certainly from the sixth century. The commune existing at this time wasn't discussed until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a far wider area than only the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington 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" component wouldn't be put in until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
