Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies next to the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old relics and coinage stumbled on in the area show evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics unearthed mean that they were settling the region possibly since the sixth century. The commune as such wasn't reported until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a considerably wider area than just the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name might possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put on up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
