Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage picked up in close proximity give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up show that they were settling the locale quite likely since the 6th Century. The commune existing then wasn't mentioned until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a substantially bigger area compared to the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not included up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
