Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the Roman period, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage picked up in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the vicinity in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The village as such is not cited till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a significantly larger area than simply the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get put on up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
