Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary in between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a historical past extending back to the times of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coins stumbled on nearby offer proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the local area in all likelihood from the sixth century. The village existing then is not observed until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a much greater area compared to the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get inserted up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
