Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits next to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins uncovered near by offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities discovered show that they were inhabiting the region very likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was then isn't observed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a significantly bigger area than just the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't put on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
