Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman era, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed near to the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled upon near by show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on denote that they were living in the locale probably from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time is not mentioned till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a substantially greater area than just the town alone, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name could very well have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be applied until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
