Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage unearthed near by give proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the local area most probably from the sixth century. The commune existing at this time is not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a significantly greater area than merely the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be appended until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
