Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman period, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins uncovered in the area show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on reveal that they were residing in the neighbourhood quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune existing at that time isn't remarked upon until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a far bigger area than simply the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put in till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
