Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the boundary between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the Roman era, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies next to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins discovered in close proximity give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who created the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were settling the area in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then is not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a significantly bigger area than only the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't included up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
