Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a history harping back to Roman days, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found near the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins uncovered in the area show proof of this. The historic Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up reveal that they were staying in the local area quite possibly since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not discussed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a far larger area than only the town itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put on prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
