Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman period, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage picked up in close proximity show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were settling the neighbourhood in all probability from the sixth century. The settlement existing then was not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a far greater area than only the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be put on until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
