Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a story harping back to the era of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is found very close to the Chilterns and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage unearthed in the area show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts found show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood in all probability since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't reported till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a significantly bigger area than only the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not put on till 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 were tenanted to various tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
