Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman times, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage stumbled on in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities found indicate that they were inhabiting the local area quite likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not discussed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a considerably bigger area than just the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be included before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
