Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins stumbled on near by show evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place in about the tenth century, and relics uncovered show that they were settling the vicinity quite likely since the sixth century. The village as it was then wasn't remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a significantly larger area than only the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name might possibly have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not applied till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
