Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a heritage going back to the Roman period, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed near the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early relics and coinage picked up nearby offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on imply that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood quite possibly since the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a significantly larger area compared to the town alone, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get put on up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
