Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman days, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is situated near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage found in the area give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were settling the vicinity very likely since the 6th Century. The village existing at that time isn't reported until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a significantly larger area than simply the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be applied up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
