Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a past going back to Roman days, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lies close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, went through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were settling the region more than likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was isn't documented till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a significantly bigger area than merely the town alone, and included the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be included up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
