Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county border between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a past going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits close to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins picked up in the area show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market in about the tenth century, and artefacts discovered reveal that they were staying in the locale in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village as it was then was not discussed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a way wider area than merely the town alone, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get put in prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
