Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage discovered nearby give evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using a market during the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the locale in all probability from the sixth century. The commune as it was then isn't observed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a substantially greater area than simply the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get put on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
