Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a historic past extending back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it sits near to the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage discovered in close proximity give proof of this. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the local area almost certainly since the sixth century. The commune as it was isn't cited until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a substantially wider area than just the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name may well have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be put on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
