Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past going back to Roman days, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it sits close to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage uncovered in close proximity offer evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the vicinity undoubtedly from the sixth century. The commune as it was wasn't documented until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a substantially wider area than only the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get inserted up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
