Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a story going back to Roman days, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins unearthed in the area show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the area very likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then isn't documented till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a far wider area than only the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be inserted prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
