Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to Roman times, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins picked up in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who introduced a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon suggest that they were residing in the region quite possibly from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time is not cited till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a way greater area than merely the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name may very well have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get added prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
