Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a history stretching back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is found near to the Chilterns and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coinage picked up near by show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on show that they were residing in the neighbourhood almost certainly since the sixth century. The commune existing then is not described till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a far wider area than just the town itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added on up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
