Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard is near the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a past going back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins found nearby offer evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed indicate that they were inhabiting the vicinity probably from the 6th Century. The commune as it was isn't cited till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a far larger area than only the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be added on prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
