Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage going back to Roman days, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coinage stumbled on in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and relics unearthed imply that they were dwelling in the vicinity very likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing then is not documented till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a considerably wider area than merely the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't appended until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
