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 stands near to the county boundary in between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage found nearby offer evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who created the market place in around the tenth century, and relics discovered denote that they were settling the vicinity more than likely from the 6th Century. The village as such wasn't listed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a significantly greater area than simply the town alone, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be applied up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
