Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lies close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coinage stumbled upon near by give evidence of this. The old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics found show that they were living in the neighbourhood very likely from the 6th Century. The village as such isn't discussed until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a way larger area than just the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get put in up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
