Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the border in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a history harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it can be found near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins unearthed in the area offer proof of this. The historic Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market during the 10th Century, and relics found suggest that they were settling the vicinity quite possibly since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not documented until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a much wider area than simply the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get put on until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
