Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it sits near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market in around the tenth century, and relics discovered show that they were dwelling in the region probably since the 6th Century. The commune existing then was not documented till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a substantially larger area compared to the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
