Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays close to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins unearthed in close proximity give proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then wasn't documented till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a way wider area compared to the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could very well have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be added prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
