Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled on near by offer evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market during the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were residing in the local area in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then is not documented till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a lot larger area than simply the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't added on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
