Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage unearthed nearby offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who used a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered indicate that they were residing in the neighbourhood quite possibly from the sixth century. The settlement as such is not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a lot greater area than only the town itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be added before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
