Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to Roman days, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage picked up nearby give evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were residing in the area quite possibly from the sixth century. The settlement as it was isn't remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a far bigger area than merely the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could perhaps have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not put in until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
