Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays close to the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins picked up near by show evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were settling the local area very likely since the sixth century. The village as it was then is not mentioned until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a lot greater area than simply the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name may have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not added before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it important to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
