Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it sits near to the Chiltern Hills and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old relics and coins stumbled upon in close proximity give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in around the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon reveal that they were dwelling in the locale possibly since the 6th Century. The village as such wasn't discussed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a much wider area than simply the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get included prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
