Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the days of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is placed very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins uncovered in close proximity show proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in around the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the vicinity in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The village as it was isn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a considerably bigger area compared to the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could quite possibly have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be put in till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
