Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins stumbled on in the area give proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place in around the tenth century, and relics discovered mean that they were residing in the neighbourhood probably from the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time is not discussed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a much larger area than simply the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be applied up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
