Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins uncovered in the area show evidence of this. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts picked up show that they were staying in the local area quite possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not discussed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a way bigger area compared to the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be included till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
