Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a past stretching back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands near the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area give proof of this. The old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood in all probability from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not documented till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a significantly wider area than merely the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't inserted prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
