Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman days, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area show proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who created the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were residing in the local area more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a significantly bigger area than merely the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be applied until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
