Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a history stretching back to the days of the Romans, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is found next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage stumbled on nearby show evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used a market in around the tenth century, and artefacts found suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity most probably since the 6th Century. The village as it was then was not listed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a much bigger area than only the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't put on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
