Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a history extending back to the era of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins found near by give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on reveal that they were dwelling in the vicinity quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't cited until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a far wider area than just the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not added on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
