Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman days, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts found indicate that they were settling the locale quite likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was then is not reported till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a significantly greater area than only the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put in up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
