Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early relics and coinage found nearby offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were inhabiting the region in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The commune existing then was not observed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a significantly bigger area than only the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't put on up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
