Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman period, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic relics and coinage unearthed in the area give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were inhabiting the region very likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was then was not observed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a much larger area than only the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get appended till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
