Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to the Roman era, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage unearthed nearby offer proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts found suggest that they were living in the region in all probability from the 6th Century. The village as it was then was not discussed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a considerably greater area compared to the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be applied until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
