Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman days, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it stands very close to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins unearthed in the area give evidence of this. The old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon denote that they were living in the locale more than likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not mentioned till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a much bigger area than just the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name could have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be appended till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
