Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled on nearby give evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up denote that they were inhabiting the local area very likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not mentioned till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a way wider area than merely the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
