Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a past stretching back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies close to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early relics and coinage unearthed in close proximity give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created a market in around the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were dwelling in the local area in all likelihood from the sixth century. The settlement as it was isn't remarked upon till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a far wider area than just the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get inserted up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
