Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins unearthed nearby offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced a market during the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed show that they were dwelling in the region in all probability from the sixth century. The village as such wasn't listed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a far greater area than simply the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get included up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
