Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to the Roman period, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated near to the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage discovered near by show evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who used the market place during the tenth century, and relics discovered reveal that they were inhabiting the vicinity more than likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then was not reported till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a much greater area than simply the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get put in up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
