Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a past extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins unearthed in the area give evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced a market during the tenth century, and relics picked up suggest that they were residing in the local area in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time isn't reported till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a considerably greater area than simply the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put in before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
