Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is near the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coins unearthed in the area give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market in around the tenth century, and relics picked up suggest that they were residing in the region in all probability since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a considerably greater area than simply the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
