Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman times, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins uncovered nearby show evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on show that they were settling the area quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing then was not described till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a significantly greater area than only the town alone, and included the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not applied till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
