Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a story harping back to the Roman era, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage picked up nearby offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities picked up reveal that they were living in the region in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement existing then wasn't described until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a far bigger area than merely the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be applied up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
