Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located close to the Chilterns and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins found in the area show evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were residing in the region almost certainly from the 6th Century. The commune as such wasn't listed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a far wider area than simply the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name will probably have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
