Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a history going back to Roman times, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies near the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coinage discovered near by give evidence of this. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics stumbled upon suggest that they were inhabiting the area possibly from the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't discussed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a way greater area than just the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be put in till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
