Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage uncovered nearby offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on imply that they were dwelling in the area in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was is not cited until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a considerably larger area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
