Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands near the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical relics and coins picked up nearby give proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were residing in the neighbourhood most probably from the 6th Century. The village as it was was not mentioned until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a much wider area than merely the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get applied up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
