Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a story extending back to Roman times, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coins stumbled on near by show evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the vicinity quite likely since the sixth century. The village as it was then is not reported until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a substantially greater area than just the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
