Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the era of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area offer evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were inhabiting the region in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement as such was not reported until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a substantially wider area than just the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't added on up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
