Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a history harping back to the Roman period, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed next to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early relics and coins unearthed near by offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place in about the tenth century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were staying in the neighbourhood probably from the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't mentioned until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a significantly greater area than only the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be appended up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
