Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated near to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins discovered nearby show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market during the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time isn't mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a considerably wider area than simply the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may perhaps have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be included till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
