Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately 37,000 and a past harping back to the days of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it stands near to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered denote that they were residing in the local area most likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't referred to until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a substantially larger area than merely the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be put on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
