Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a history stretching back to Roman days, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins picked up near by offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics unearthed show that they were settling the neighbourhood very likely since the 6th Century. The settlement as such is not observed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a way greater area than just the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added on until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
