Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman period, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays very close to the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins stumbled on near by offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon mean that they were staying in the neighbourhood most probably since the sixth century. The commune as it was then wasn't remarked upon till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a much wider area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be inserted until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
