Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins found near by show evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who created a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were residing in the locale probably from the sixth century. The village existing then is not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a way greater area than just the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't inserted before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
