Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a history extending back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage discovered in close proximity give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts found indicate that they were dwelling in the area probably from the 6th Century. The village as it was is not documented till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a considerably greater area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town might have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
