Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historic past harping back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there were settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins uncovered nearby show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities discovered suggest that they were living in the neighbourhood almost certainly from the sixth century. The village existing at that time wasn't mentioned until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a much larger area than only the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be appended prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
