Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage harping back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found near the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage uncovered near by give proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities discovered suggest that they were settling the region in all probability since the sixth century. The commune existing then was not reported till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a lot bigger area compared to the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't included until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
