Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins found in the area offer proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who developed the market place in about the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed reveal that they were settling the region perhaps from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then isn't cited till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a considerably greater area compared to the town itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
