Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the era of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins discovered in close proximity show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered suggest that they were settling the area most probably from the sixth century. The village as such wasn't reported till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a considerably wider area than just the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may likely have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get put on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
