Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county border in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a story harping back to the times of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is placed very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old relics and coins unearthed near by show proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who used the market place in about the 10th Century, and antiquities found suggest that they were inhabiting the area in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village as such was not referred to till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a significantly greater area than simply the town itself, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not inserted until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
