Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to Roman times, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it sits next to the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage stumbled upon nearby offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market in around the tenth century, and artefacts found show that they were settling the region in all probability from the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not described until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a substantially larger area than merely the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name may have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't put on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
