Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located near the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage unearthed in the area give proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place in about the tenth century, and relics uncovered reveal that they were residing in the local area perhaps since the sixth century. The village existing at this time isn't documented until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a far larger area than simply the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name could have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added on prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
