Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is situated near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins uncovered near by show proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on show that they were residing in the area in all probability from the sixth century. The village as it was isn't cited till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a considerably larger area than just the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put in till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
