Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a historic past going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage found near by give proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place during the tenth century, and relics found show that they were settling the region undoubtedly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not observed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a much wider area than merely the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get applied till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
