Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins discovered nearby show evidence of this. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and artefacts found show that they were residing in the locale in all probability from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't discussed until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a considerably greater area than simply the town itself, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
