Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coins stumbled upon nearby give evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics discovered show that they were living in the region perhaps since the 6th Century. The village existing then isn't documented until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a way greater area than only the town itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could perhaps have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get included till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
