Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a story extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it stands near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old relics and coins stumbled upon nearby show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were staying in the vicinity quite likely since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then was not described till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a considerably wider area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be inserted up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
