Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated close to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage uncovered near by show evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who created the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on reveal that they were residing in the vicinity quite likely since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time is not reported until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a considerably larger area than just the town itself, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't put in prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
