Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a heritage going back to the Roman era, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins discovered near by show evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who introduced the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on show that they were settling the locale quite likely from the sixth century. The commune as it was then isn't mentioned until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a way bigger area than just the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
