Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a heritage going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins unearthed in close proximity show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics stumbled on imply that they were inhabiting the locale most likely from the 6th Century. The village as such is not documented till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a far larger area than just the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name might possibly have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be put on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
