Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the Roman era, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coins found nearby show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed mean that they were staying in the neighbourhood most likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't cited till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a considerably wider area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put in before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
