Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins stumbled on near by give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon suggest that they were dwelling in the vicinity almost certainly from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then wasn't cited till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a much wider area than just the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name may likely have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
