Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman era, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found near to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage found in the area show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and relics found show that they were staying in the vicinity perhaps from the sixth century. The settlement as it was isn't discussed till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a considerably wider area compared to the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not appended before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
