Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past going back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage found in the area offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market in about the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on reveal that they were living in the region almost certainly from the sixth century. The commune existing at this time is not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a significantly larger area than simply the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get included before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
