Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to 37,000 and a history going back to the era of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins uncovered in the area offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should 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 the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics picked up show that they were settling the area undoubtedly since the sixth century. The settlement as it was wasn't cited until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a far wider area compared to the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get inserted before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
