Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a past going back to Roman days, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage discovered nearby give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who created a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were residing in the neighbourhood quite likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was was not observed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a far bigger area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be added prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
