Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county border in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around 37,000 and a past going back to the times of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is located near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage stumbled on in the area offer evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market in about the tenth century, and relics discovered suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood most likely from the 6th Century. The village existing at this time isn't reported till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a considerably bigger area compared to the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be inserted until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
