Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the county boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to Roman times, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands next to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area offer evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in about the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on suggest that they were dwelling in the area quite likely from the 6th Century. The village existing then isn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a lot greater area than simply the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put on before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
