Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the border in between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a historic past stretching back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins uncovered in the area show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, went through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who created a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were living in the vicinity in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement as such wasn't described until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a considerably bigger area compared to the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may likely have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get applied before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
