Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the county boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to Roman days, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage picked up in close proximity offer evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were residing in the neighbourhood almost certainly since the 6th Century. The village existing then is not discussed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a way wider area than simply the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get inserted prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it important to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
