Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to Roman days, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage unearthed in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts found show that they were living in the neighbourhood in all probability since the sixth century. The village as such wasn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a much bigger area than just the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
