Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits near to the Chiltern Hills and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage found in close proximity offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics found show that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood quite possibly from the 6th Century. The commune as such wasn't remarked upon till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a far greater area than simply the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get put in until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
