Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the county border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past extending back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands close to the Chilterns and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage stumbled on in the area show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were residing in the locale perhaps from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then is not cited till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a considerably wider area than merely the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be applied until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
