Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered denote that they were staying in the area possibly since the sixth century. The village as such is not remarked upon till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a far wider area compared to the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get appended till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
