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 busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage stumbled upon nearby show evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who introduced the market place in around the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't cited until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a substantially wider area than merely the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't appended till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
