Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman times, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage stumbled on nearby give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced the market place in about the 10th Century, and relics stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the locale probably since the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not discussed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a substantially greater area than only the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name may perhaps have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be added till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
