Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage unearthed in close proximity show proof of this. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed mean that they were dwelling in the area quite likely since the 6th Century. The commune as such isn't cited until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a significantly greater area than simply the town itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get put on up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
