Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county border between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a story extending back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed near to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coinage uncovered near by give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market in about the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered reveal that they were inhabiting the locale perhaps since the sixth century. The village existing then isn't described till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a way larger area than merely the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not inserted till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
