Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found near to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by offer evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market during the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were settling the vicinity quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time was not described until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a significantly greater area compared to the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may possibly have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get included until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
