Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a story going back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found close to the Chilterns and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled upon in the area give proof of this. The old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were dwelling in the area in all likelihood from the sixth century. The village existing then was not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a way larger area than just the town itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get included before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
